E-book: OReilly, Dreamweaver MX 2004 The Missing Manual eBook

By David Sawyer McFarland

The World Wide Web continues to evolve, growing in scope and complexity, with new technologies popping up every year to make the Web look and work better. Even people building personal Web sites now employ various programming languages and server technologies to dish up content. Throughout its history, Dreamweaver has managed to keep pace with this changing technological landscape with each new version.

Dreamweaver MX 2004 is no exception: it's capable of working with more technologies than any previous version. Whether you're creating database-enabled Active Server Pages, using Cascading Style Sheets for cutting-edge design effects, or simply sticking to straightforward HTML pages, Dreamweaver has just about all the tools you need.

Any enterprising designer can create Web pages, Cascading Style Sheets, and even JavaScript programs with a simple text editor. In fact, Dreamweaver MX 2004 provides powerful text-editing abilities for creating basic text files or complex Java server pages. But why go to all that trouble when Dreamweaver's page-building approach makes your job of creating beautiful and complex Web sites so much easier? Whether you're new to building Web pages or a hard-core, hand-coding HTML jockey, Dreamweaver is a powerful tool that lets you build Web sites quickly and efficiently, without compromising the quality of your code.

E-book: Adobe Seminars: Web Page Design

by: Lisa Lopuck and Sheryl Hampton

Adobe Seminars: Web Page Design is a portable seminar on web page
design taught by experienced professionals that documents Adobe
software such as Adobe Photoshop 4, Adobe Illustrator 7, and Adobe
PageMill 2, as well as the latest HTML language protocols.

In October 1997 Adobe Press book will bring all the essential information
of a two-day seminar into a compact and reusable format, complete with
step-by-step techniques. Two noted Web seminar instructors, Lisa
Lopuck and Sheryl Hampton of ElectraVision, have distilled their training
sessions into over a hundred two-page techniques using popular Adobe
applications to simulate how Web pages are actually created. The result is a
reference book of clear, simple explanations and designs that are reusable
page after Web page.

E-book: Algorithms

By: Robert Sedgewick

This book is intended to survey the most important algorithms in use on
computers today and to teach fundamental techniques to the growing number
of people who are interested in becoming serious computer users. It is appropriate
for use as a textbook for a second, third or fourth course in computer
science: after students have acquired some programming skills and familiarity
with computer systems, but before they have specialized courses in advanced
areas of computer science or computer applications. Additionally, the book
may be useful as a reference for those who already have some familiarity with
the material, since it contains a number of computer implementations of useful

The book consists of forty chapters which are grouped into seven major
parts: mathematical algorithms, sorting, searching, string processing, geometric
algorithms, graph algorithms and advanced topics. A major goal in the
development of this book has been to bring together the fundamental methods
from these diverse areas, in order to provide access to the best methods
that we know for solving problems by computer for as many people as possible.
The treatment of sorting, searching and string processing (which may
not be covered in other courses) is somewhat more complete than the treatment
of mathematical algorithms (which may be covered in more depth in
applied mathematics or engineering courses), or geometric and graph algorithms
(which may be covered in more depth in advanced computer science
courses). Some of the chapters involve introductory treatment of advanced
material. It is hoped that the descriptions here can provide students with
some understanding of the basic properties of fundamental algorithms such
as the FFT or the simplex method, while at the same time preparing them
to better appreciate the methods when they learn them in advanced courses.

The orientation of the book is towards algorithms that are likely to be
of practical use. The emphasis is on teaching students the tools of their
trade to the point that they can confidently implement, run and debug useful
algorithms. Full implementations of the methods discussed (in an actual
programming language) are included in the text, along with descriptions of
the operations of these programs on a consistent set of examples. Though not
emphasized, connections to theoretical computer science and the analysis of
algorithms are not ignored. When appropriate, analytic results are discussed
to illustrate why certain algorithms are preferred. When interesting, the
relationship of the practical algorithms being discussed to purely theoretical
results is described. More information of the orientation and coverage of the
material in the book may be found in the Introduction which follows.

Microsoft Expression Encoder v2.0 Full Version

Microsoft Expression Encoder 2 Features

Fastest Path to Silverlight

With more than a dozen built in Silverlight media player templates, Expression Encoder offers the fastest way to publish media assets to the web in a Silverlight experience. Add a custom publishing plug-in to deliver finished content directly to your server or service.

Cuts Editing

Make simple edits to clips directly in Expression Encoder. Cut out setup noise, mistakes or surprises from your video.

High Quality Video

Expression Encoder 2 delivers high quality VC-1 and H.264 for devices (in SP1) encoded video. VC-1 is a SMTPE standard codec that is part of the Blu-Ray high definition optical disc specification. H.264 is a popular MPEG format for video, used extensively on devices. Expression Encoder supports the newest VC-1 encoder features, offering greater control, higher quality and takes advantage of multi-core CPUs and multiple processors to deliver optimum quality and high performance encodes.

Live Encoding

Live events offer a great way to deliver news, marketing or demo content to your customers in real-time. Expression Encoder offers simple setup and easy to use switching interface for mixing live and file-based content in your live production.

Encoding for Everyone

Encoding has traditionally been a specialist's task. Finished video projects were thrown over a wall to a compression expert, using a specialized application to fine tune media for final delivery. Expression Encoder provides an artist friendly user interface and easy to use presets to enable everyone in the media production workflow to encode consistent, high-quality Silverlight experiences.

Flexible File Import Support

Import files from the content creation application of your choice. AVI, QuickTime, MPEG and any codec with a DirectShow decoder can be imported into Expression Encoder and output as a WMV, ready for Silverlight.

Intelligent Encoding

Import existing WMV content, make edits and add fades. Expression Encoder will identify changes to the source file and only re-encode the modified sections of the file and not the entire clip, saving time and maintaining compression quality.

Mark Your Media

Watermark videos with still or animated overlays to define ownership or branding on viral videos. Add pre-roll advertising or legal disclaimers at the beginning and end of your video for total control of the viewing experience.

Use the new Expression Encoder Object Model to access our encoding engine from other applications or processes. Use job presets to save multiple settings in an encoding job and apply these settings as a batch process via the Object Model or the command line.

Expression Media Integration

Use the powerful asset management tools to find and preview video and audio clips in Expression Media and then drag and drop the right clips to Expression Encoder for final output.
