Dreamweaver provides a visual, intuitive interface and the tools you need to develop cutting-edge websites and mobile and web applications, all the while generating clean, industry-standard CSS3 and HTML5 code. To keep you from getting buried in code, the program now features fluid grid layout, which accommodates designing for various display sizes from desktop monitors to mobile devices.
Rendering and Preview
Dreamweaver CS 5.5 Live View and Design View both take advantage of the most current builds of Webkit, the rendering engine powering both the Safari and Chrome desktop browsers and many mobile browsers. This ensures that you get the most representative preview of your projects across desktop and mobile devices-and be able to visually author richer HTML5- and CSS3-based experiences with more confidence than ever before.
HTML5 and CSS3 Authoring
With CSS3 media queries, you won't need to find the "lowest-common-denominator" for your designs and layouts among the form factor between tablets, phones, desktop browsers, and HD set-top boxes. And Dreamweaver CS5.5 uses media queries to let any HTML-based content quickly and easily specify a particular CSS file for display, based on the form factor of the device that's browsing it.
jQuery Mobile Integration
For mobile-specific projects, Dreamweaver CS5.5 integrates the new jQuery Mobile framework to allow rapid development and design of a mobile-specific interface with the minimum amount of hassle.
