Stack Overflow Announces the Mozquito Factory

Stack Overflow Wednesday released the Mozquito Factory, billed as "the world's first XHTML authoring environment."

XHTML combines HTML with the power of XML, allowing the creation of richer Web pages and flexible Web applications for both standard Web browsers to mobile net-connected devices.

Mozquito Factory is a client-side, stand-alone authoring environment that was written entirely in Java. The tool was designed to reduce authoring costs for complex, dynamic Web interfaces. The Mozquito Factory was built on a modular framework, and combines three applications into a one efficient toolkit:

  • Mozquito Engine - enables current browsers to process the extensibility and display next-generation data formats and standards such as XML and XHTML
  • XHTML Validator - automatically validates any XHTML or XML document, optimizes markup, and invokes the Mozquito Engine upon successful validation
  • Factory Editor - for authoring and editing dynamic XHTML, XML and forms-intensive Web sites without scripting or programming
Using the Mozquito Factory, users don't have to worry about browser incompatibilities or cross-browser scripting; developers can design and create online shops, eCommerce applications, quizzes, polls, questionnaires, games, calendars, order forms, surveys, administration interfaces and complex, dynamic Web sites.
