Working with Images
Text plays an important role in web development and, as seen in the previous chapter, environments such as Dreamweaver 4.0 provide a number of tools to support their insertion and modification. The primary goal being that the contents of a page need to look attractive and be informative. Pictures have, for a long time, played a critical role in presenting concepts and ideas in a compact way. Their usage for web development was hampered (particularly in the early stages) by the bandwidth restrictions imposed by the Internet. Although this still is an issue, modern technological developments have meant that not just basic graphical objects, but sophisticated elements (such as animations) are a common sight on web pages.
