Adding text to a web page requires more than just typing on the page. You must carefully plan your web pages so that search engines (and viewers) can easily find relevant content on your website. In this chapter, you read about the fundamentals of text formatting for web pages, from the basic principles of choosing a font size and font family to spell checking text and implementing Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).
The various menus and panels in Dreamweaver enable you to assign type properties quickly and to update several instances in a few easy steps with CSS. From a content perspective, when you add text to your pages, make it relevant to and descriptive of your site’s business and purpose. This strategy makes your page more relevant to search engines and viewers.
