Frequently Asked Questions - Dreamweaver (Adobe)

Why is Dreamweaver adding special characters in a hyperlink (e.g. the percent sign)?

Remove the setting to encode special characters in URLS using %. Select Preferences from the Edit menu. In the Code Rewriting (Dreamweaver 4) or HTML Rewriting (Dreamweaver 3) category, disable this selection.

I created a web page but nothing displays in the browser. However, when I view the source, I see the contents. Why is this happening?

You might want to have a look at your closing title tag. You might have accidently omitted the < or > character and therefore the browser thinks the remaining coding belongs to the title tag.

How often do you clean files that have been stored on the U drive of the Mills, Innis and Thode public computers?

Files saved on the U drive (virtual RAM disk) are cleared each time the machine is restarted. There are competing requirements for the need to clear these files in that most students do not want their documents to stay on a publicly accessible computer; on the other hand, when something goes wrong, file retention would be an asset. Also, if files were allowed to accumulate on the hard drive, performance would deteriorate.
