Question: What is a Dreamweaver template?

Answer: Dreamweaver (a standard web-authoring tool) provides a "template" function (very much like a server-side include) in which one file holds all of the repeated information for all the Web pages.

The template file usually holds the universal navigation bars, the top banner, the footer, and all other material that appears on every page of the website.

By using the "template" function, the Web designer can amend these "universal" parts in the one template file, and then re-attached this file to all of the other pages of the website, so that all the new pages will contain the amended information residing in the template.

Dreamweaver templates are essential for websites of any significant size: not only do they save time when updating, they make is easier to prevent and/or locate errors that are made throughout designing process.
