Adobe Dreamweaver CS5.5 Studio Techniques: Designing and Developing for Mobile with jQuery, HTML5, and CSS3
David Powers has once again separated himself from the pack. His new book is thorough—not only in its information on how to optimize your use of Dreamweaver—but also in its explanation of modern standards-based Web design and best practices. David's clarity and ability to explain complex subjects clearly makes this a book not to be missed.

Dreamweaver CS5.5 has risen to the challenge by providing designers with the tools needed to build modern websites with HTML5, CSS3, and jQuery. To mention just a few, there’s code hinting for the jQuery core library, the ability to see what pages will look like at different screen resolutions without leaving the Document window, support for jQuery Mobile widgets, and integration of PhoneGap to build native apps for Android or iOS (the operating system used in the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch).
The emphasis in Dreamweaver CS5.5 is firmly on mobile development and designing for multiple screens, but that’s not all. There’s improved support for HTML5 and CSS3, including tools to simplify the creation of rounded corners and drop shadows without images. Previous versions of Dreamweaver supported only a limited range of CSS selectors. Live view now supports them all. Oh yes, Dreamweaver CS5.5 supports web fonts, too.
