The HTML editor sports a drag and drop tools palette, customizable toolbar, advanced syntax coloring, and the ability to upload and download files to your FTP server. You can also use the app to translate Web pages into multiple languages.
WebDesign can be extended through the use of plug-ins. WebDesign’s Plug-in SDK (software development kit) will be available shortly after the release of WebDesign 1.0, according to
