Dreamweaver


Dreamweaver: Dreamweaver is a popular web development and editing software. Originally created by Macromedia in 1997, Dreamweaver was purchased by Adobe Systems in 2005. Following this acquisition, the software was adapted to become more compliant with standards set by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), increasing it's compatibility and quality. As a result, modern versions of Dreamweaver include improved support for CSS, JavaScript, and a number of server-side scripting languages and frameworks.

Dreamweaver is best known for its use of a WYSIWYG computing approach, or "what you see is what you get" methodology. For example, Dreamweaver's code editor features real time syntax checking, rapid layout design and code generation, helping users to write code and visualize the product they are creating. Because of this, Dreamweaver can typically enable users to create and edit even if they have not been trained to use JavaScript. Due to this ease and usability, Dreamweaver is now available in 16 languages, including Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Japanese and Korean. Adobe CS3, an older version, even featured a capacity for Middle Eastern languages, such as Arabic, Persian, Urdu and Hebrew.
