Dreamweaver 8 snippets are used by web designers who design and program often. Trust me, being a web designer and designing all day long, these snippets come in handy and save me time. Snippets make it easy for a designer to save lines of code that they use often and reuse it over and over. Dreamweaver 8 also has some snippets already written that you can use. Snippets would be ideal for things like scripts, headers, and footers. But they can be used for all kinds of things. In this guide I’m going to show you how to create a snippet and how to use a snippet. First we’ll look at how to create a snippet.

For those of you unfamiliar with Snippets, you will be amazed! Similar to snippets in other programs, Dreamweaver MX has its very own Snippets panel. These snippets are very similar to ones in other programs but use a different file format, .CSN. Classic snippets use 2 files, .HSS and .HSE.

Dreamweaver Snippets allow you to save and reuse chunks of code over and over. This saves time and effort in maintaining a large Web site. Plus Dreamweaver has a lot of pre-written snippets to use. Use snippets to store things like:
* Headers and footers

Trying to find the best design for a&awerks websight. Started out with something a little high production and implemented it in the “Coming Soon” page here
The serif fonts and the gears are something I’m looking to maintain. To me, a serif font is industrious, professional and consistent. The gears and cogs are a further representation of “industrious” and more towards hard-working and technically inclined.
Built up the “steel version” under the high production look of the Coming Soon page. The layout is a good one, but we don’t feel it’s right for our purposes. I could tweak it some more, but … the layout just isn’t right for the project.
Changed the logo to just the cog and started working with a simpler, more white-spacey layout but it’s too open. I abandoned it.
The simpler cog
But this is the best. The colors just happened and I got the chance to make another robot. The layout is open but not empty. One page website. Exercises all the programming I can swing and it’s neat.

I’m really liking the æ media site. It incorporates flash, jQuery, HTML5 and so on. Very nicely exercising my skillset.

Needs some background textures maybe. Perhaps I’ll dig the coral tile up and work with it.
