Default stuck at page 140

hello there!

I'm a newbie at Dreamweaver, but hopefully will be able to set up my own website once completing the book!Right, to the problem: I'm currently stuck at page 140, at the second bit of how to create embedded CSS. After scratching my head for hours trying to find where 'body' is in the CSS panel, I realise that I'm missing what it should look like at figure 4-1 (pg 130)<style> with sub properties like body,,style2 etc. Dreamweaver was suppose to have created several styles in previous chapters but is non-existent in my current CSS panel!how do i get it back?

thanks!
andrew

Hi Andrew,

Sorry for the long delay. I have been off-line for over a day, while my office was being repainted....

Anyway, back to your problem.

I am not sure whether you didn't follow the steps in the book correctly, or there is an error in the book. I haven't checked all the steps, but at page 134, step 1 you're instructed to "make the necessary changes to News.htm". Once you do that, you have a link to the style sheet embedded in the page, which gives you access to the body selector.

For the body to shop up in the CSS panel (as said on page 140), you'll need that body selector in your style sheet or embedded in the page.

To try it out, either <link> the page to the style sheet, or add the following to the head section of your page:
Code:
<style>
body
{

}
</style>
Once you have that, save the page and press F5. Then the CSS panel will update and show the body selector. Also, the CSS Properties dialog will update (Press F9 when you don't see the panel).

HtH,

Imar
