It's interesting how life evolves. It seems my career is taking me into
ever more web development, primarily of the "interactive for education"

Like many web-dev types, most of my hands on skill is self taught. I
use Dreamweaver CS3 for the most part, with some plain text editing.

Here are some client complaints about the sight I'm working on now:

1) There is an accordion-style menu. I used what Adobe calls "spry
assets" to make it, and spry creates javascript - which I'm not fluent
in. If you are not familiar with accordion-style menus, Each tab
scrolls (accordions) open to reveal a text pane that holds the links
for the tab topic. On the page in question, when a viewer opens a tab
that is not the top tab - and navigates to a page under that tab, the
new page shows the top tab open (there must be some default setting
here) not the tab related to the topic.

2) They say: --Double clicking, or a subsequent later click, on a link
that opens a separate new window, unexpectedly opens TWO identical
windows. Second and subsequent clicks on any link should open the
window that's already open, not a new window.

I used the "_blank" setting for this, is there a better one?

/*Last*/ - does anyone know of a listserv, forum,.or other interactive
resource that could be helpful to me - specifically for web
development? I'd like it to have people on it who are using
Dreamweaver, though not exclusively.
