Popular Design Software Challenge for Tomorrow’s Web Design- Part 3:
In this article I do continue to discuss about how one can use the dreamweaver CS3 for his work in web design. At this point in time I do hope my article is helping somebody figure out something for his future projects. If not, please one should look keenly or be patient and take a tour with me as I discuss this topic further in this article and more articles to come.

• Many features as well as tools are in illogical places, they do force one to hunt around for them
• One needs to know HTML as well as CSS if he plans to just jump in and then use the program; there are actually tools for beginners
