Any single white-space character, including space, tab, form feed, or line feed.
In a standard document, includes thehead,title, andbodyelements. In a frameset document, includes thehead,title, andframesetelements.
Sets these attributes in the code that it generates and, when cleaning up XHTML, reports missingaltattributes.
Other languages, such as Perl, are not supported by the language-specific coding features in Dreamweaver; for example, you can create and edit Perl files, but code hints dont apply to that language.
Any nondigit character. Equivalent to [^0-9].
This affects the following attributes:checked,compact,declare,defer,disabled,ismap,multiple,noresize,noshade,nowrap,readonly, andselected.
All attribute values must be surrounded by quotation marks.
Learn about how Dreamweaver supports the different coding languages that are used to build websites.
(Thetypeattribute of thescriptelement has been required since HTML 4, when thelanguageattribute was deprecated.)
When you develop a dynamic page and select a server behavior from the Server Behaviors panel, Dreamweaver inserts one or more code blocks into your page to make the server behavior work.
Anything other than a word boundary.
Attributes cant be minimized; for example,td nowrapis not valid; the correct form istd nowrap=nowrap.
Empty elements must have a closing tag, or the opening tag must end with/. For example,bris not valid; the correct form isbr/brorbr/. Following are the empty elements:area,base,basefont,br,col,frame,hr,img,input,isindex,link,meta, andparam.
A few of these code rewriting options are enabled by default.
Any single non-white-space character.
Regular expressions are patterns that describe character combinations in text. Use them in your code searches to help describe concepts such as lines that begin with var and attribute values that contain a number.
The Roundtrip HTML capabilities in Dreamweaver let you move your documents back and forth between a text-based HTML editor and Dreamweaver with little or no effect on the content and structure of the documents original HTML source code. These capabilities include the following:
st?onmatches son in Johnson and ston in Johnston but nothing in Appleton or tension
For example, searching for (\d+)\/(\d+)\/(\d+) and replacing it with $2/$1/$3 swaps the day and month in a date separated by slashes, thereby converting between American-style dates and European-style dates.
You can set options that instruct Dreamweaver to automatically clean up your hand-written code according to criteria that you specify. However, your code is never rewritten unless the code rewriting options are enabled or you perform an action that changes the code. For example, Dreamweaver does not alter your white space or change the case of attributes unless you use the Apply Source Formatting command.
\sbookmatches book in blue book but nothing in notebook
h$matches h in teach but not in teacher
\Bbmatches b in goober but nothing in book
Forces HTML element and attribute names to be lowercase in the XHTML code that it generates and when cleaning up XHTML, regardless of your tag and attribute case preferences.
Exactly n occurrences of the preceding character.
Adds thenamespaceattribute to thehtmlelement, as follows:
Selecting a region changes the language and/or content on .
Inserts closing tags in the code that it generates, and when cleaning up XHTML.
The following table lists the special characters in regular expressions, their meanings, and usage examples. To search for text containing one of the special characters in the table, escape the special character by preceding it with a backslash. For example, to search for the actual asterisk in the phrasesome conditions apply*, your search pattern might look like this:apply\*. If you dont escape the asterisk, youll find all the occurrences of apply (as well as any of appl, applyy, and applyyy), not just the ones followed by an asterisk.
You can design the appearance of a website (such as fonts, and colors for example) across a website using CSS. You can then use HTML to insert images, text, videos, forms, and other pieces of content together into a cohesive web page.
Using CSS and HTML together, you can build a static site. However, most websites require some form of interaction (such as requiring a customer to fill out a form, or make a payment) and a database to store all the website data.
Southeast Asia (Includes Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam) – English
o2matches oo in loom and the first two os in mooooo but nothing in money
Some of the requirements also are required in various versions of HTML.
Any single character except newline.
Includes Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan
The preceding character 1 or more times.
a id=introIntroduction/aora id=section1 name=intro Introduction/a.
Dreamweaver does not change tags it doesnt recognizeincluding XML tagsbecause it has no criteria by which to judge them. If an unrecognized tag overlaps another tag (for example,MyNewTagemtext/MyNewTag/em), Dreamweaver marks it as an error but doesnt rewrite the code.
.anmatches ran and can in the phrase bran muffins can be tasty
Use parentheses to set off groupings within the regular expression to be referred to later. Then use $1, $2, $3, and so on in the Replace With field to refer to the first, second, third, and later parenthetical groupings.
!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC -//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Frameset//EN
um+matches um in rum and umm in yummy but nothing in huge
\bbmatches b in book but nothing in goober or snob
[e-g]matches e in bed, f in folly, and g in guard
Any digit character. Equivalent to [0-9].
If you manually change the code within a code block, you can no longer use panels such as the Bindings and Server Behaviors panels to edit the server behavior. Dreamweaver looks for specific patterns in the page code to detect server behaviors and display them in the Server Behaviors panel. If you change a code blocks code in any way, Dreamweaver can no longer detect the server behavior and display it in the Server Behaviors panel. However, the server behavior still exists on the page, and you can edit it in the coding environment in Dreamweaver.
And for backwards-compatibility with browsers that are not XML-enabled, there must be a space before the/(for example,br /, notbr/).
The root element of the document must behtml, and thehtmlelement must designate the XHTML namespace.
Sets thetypeandlanguageattributes inscriptelements, and thetypeattribute instyleelements, in the code that it generates and when cleaning up XHTML.
An enumerated type value is a value from a specified list of allowed values; for example, thealignattribute has the following allowed values:center,justify,left, andright.
Optionally, you can set Dreamweaver to highlight invalid code in Code view (in yellow). When you select a highlighted section, the Property inspector displays information on how to correct the error.
Any non-alphanumeric character. Equivalent to [^A-Za-z0-9_].
In addition to text-editing capabilities, Adobe Dreamweaver provides various features, such as code hints, to help you code in the following languages:
All elements in the document must nest properly:
[^aeiou]initially matches r in orange, b in book, and k in eek!
Inserts empty elements with a space before the closing slash in empty tags in the code that it generates, and when cleaning up XHTML.
Use a third-party text editor to edit the current document.
\Dmatches S in 900S and Q in Q45
Dreamweaver generates new XHTML code and cleans up existing XHTML code in a way that meets most of the XHTML requirements. The tools that you need to meet the few XHTML requirements that remain are also provided.
In the Search For box, to refer to a parenthetical grouping earlier in the regular expression, use \1, \2, \3, and so on instead of $1, $2, $3.
Return character. Make sure that you deselect the Ignore Whitespace Differences option when searching for this, if not using regular expressions. Note that this matches a particular character, not the general notion of a line break; for instance, it doesnt match abrtag or aptag. Return characters appear as spaces in Design view, not as line breaks.
Any one of the characters enclosed in the brackets. Specify a range of characters with a hyphen (for example, [a-f] is equivalent to [abcdef]).
\dmatches 3 in C3PO and 2 in apartment 2G
A word boundary (such as a space or carriage return).
Places quotation marks around attribute values in the code that it generates, and when cleaning up XHTML.
The preceding character at most once (that is, indicates that the preceding character is optional).
^Tmatches T in This good earth but not in Uncle Toms Cabin
Middle East and North Africa – English
Any alphanumeric character, including underscore. Equivalent to [A-Za-z0-9_].
Note: If an HTML browser does not support HTML 4, it might fail to interpret these Boolean attributes when they appear in their full form.
\Sbookmatches book in notebook but nothing in blue book
All script and style elements must have atypeattribute.

By default, Dreamweaver does not make changes in code created or edited in other HTML editors, even if the code is invalid, unless you enable code-rewriting options.
The following table describes the XHTML requirements that Dreamweaver meets automatically:
All element and attribute names must be lowercase.
At least n, and at most m, occurrences of the preceding character.
\W matches & in Jake&Mattie and % in 100%
Allimgandareaelements must have analtattribute.
There must be a DOCTYPE declaration in the document prior to the root element, and the declaration must reference one of the three Document Type Definition (DTD) files for XHTML (strict, transitional, or frameset).
Inserts full attribute-value pairs in the code that it generates, and when cleaning up XHTML.
Generates correctly nested code and, when cleaning up XHTML, corrects nesting in code that was not generated by Dreamweaver.
The preceding character 0 or more times.
For attributes with values of an enumerated type, the values must be lowercase.

To create these back-end channels of communication, you need a server-side programming language (such as PHP) that communicates with the database.
Any character not enclosed in the brackets. Specify a range of characters with a hyphen (for example, [^a-f] is equivalent to [^abcdef]).
Or, if the XHTML document has a frameset:
Sets thenameandidattributes to the same value, whenever thenameattribute is set by a Property inspector, in the code that Dreamweaver generates, and when cleaning up XHTML.
Forces enumerated type values to be lowercase in the code that it generates, and when cleaning up XHTML.
The following elements must have anidattribute as well as anameattribute:a,applet,form,frame,iframe,img, andmap. For example,a name=introIntroduction/ais not valid; the correct form is
