Umm I guess what he’s trying to say about DW is that it didn’t really build up his knowledge of HTML and CSS as it does quite a bit for you. I found that out myself which is why i used to code in notepad when I was learning. Once you are semi proficient with the languages then DW helps in speeding up the creative process and since you already know how to use different attributes and tags etc dream weaver is helpful. If one didn’t know they would rely too heavily on the premade templates and this would jsut stifle their creativity. I’m currently on learning Js and JQuery and its not giving me a hard time, but I find I’m missing that aha moment. For example I can go through something someone else has made and have it do what I want it to do. That being said, I can’t go off and make my own JQ plugin from scratch and I certainly don’t have any ideas for using JQ creatively. I haven’t even touched word press yet, but i shall real soon. I agree with DboG on learning Js first before tackling JQ.
