This is a good spot to reflect, and certainly too soon to discuss our new subject area of Fireworks.

In an all to short a period we introduced parts of Dreamweaver to you. However, given the time-frame we did cover quite a bit of territory anyway; so what single good thing can you come up with about using Dreamweaver?

What element from what we covered is still a big area of concern to you? Do you think you can work on your own at this time or do you need more instruction? How will you get this instruction?
