An Overview of CSS in Dreamweaver MX 2004 – Use the Tag Inspector for Changing and Creating Styles
Use the Tag Inspector for Changing and Creating Styles:
- Click in the first line of the page. The Tag inspector will show there are two rules affecting this item.
- Click the body,td,th line in the Applied Rules column. The lower part of the panel will show the styling that affects these tags. Make the following changes:
- Change color to #333333.
- Change font-size to 12 points (much more readable, huh?)
- Change background color to #CCCCCC.
You have now made changes to your external CSS style sheet and have seen how you can add new styles using the CSS Styles panel and the Tag inspector. In practice, it is likely you will use both methods to add and manipulate CSS styles. In fact, before you even realize it, you will discover that implementing CSS within your sites is as easy as adding font tags (and a lot more fun!).
