Luckman Interactive Releases WebEdit Pro 3.0

Luckman Interactive, Inc. this week released a major upgrade to its popular WebEdit Pro HTML authoring tool.

The new version, WebEdit Pro 3.0, includes several tools and wizards that will enable even total beginners to create appealing Web sites.

Many professional developers prefer to work directly in the HTML source code, avoiding WYSIWYG editors like they were the plague. Often WYSIWYG tools are optimized for specific Web browsers or HTML specs, and developers are stuck in a position of "take it or leave it" when it comes to the resulting HTML code.

Tools such as WebEdit Pro enable developers to have more control over their code, enabling them to edit code that has been created using any tool--without adding additional tags or proprietary code.

Luckman has also included an extensive set of interactive wizards for beginners that make it easy to add links, anchors, graphics, image maps, tables, forms, ActiveX objects, Java objects, multimedia elements, and style sheets. The developer may even insert toolbar shortcuts for their most frequently used tags.

WebEdit Pro 3.0 offers real-time syntax checking that allows developers to check their HTML code to ensure it follows the specs for HTML versions 1.0 to 4.0. The HTML syntax is color-coded with contrasting colors as it is entered, and the program can validate HTML code to any selected level.

WebEdit Pro 3.0 has a retail price of $89.95 and may be downloaded from from the Luckman Web site. Registered users of WebEdit Pro 2.03 may upgrade to version 3.0 for $59.95.
