Rage Software has updated WebDesign, its Web authoring package for Mac OS X and Mac OS 9.x, to version 2.1. The update offers new integration with the Mac OS X shell and terminal.
WebDesign lets you visually create HTML elements, including forms and image maps and insert them into your document. You can see and edit the HTML code, as well as edit tag attributes and values using WebDesign’s built-in tag attribute editor and drag and drop tools pallet. There’s also a built-in file browser and FTP navigator.
Version 2.1 includes an Open Any menu item that lets you open practically any kind of file in WebDesign’s editor. A Cascading Style Sheets editing mode provides CSS syntax coloring and is designed to simplify work with CSS documents.
With the new version, the Web authoring package allows you to add third party applications for editing a document, then returning it to WebDesign, with the changes automatically recognized. There’s improved performance when working with large documents, a site manager with more file management features, contextual menus support and enhanced previewing in Web browsers.
WebDesign 2.1 is free for registered users of WebDesign 2.x. Registered users of version 1.x can upgrade for US$20.95. For new users the price is $29.95; volume and academic discounts are also available.
