HTML Tools Update

Send Article to a Friend

HTML Tools Update -- Although my seven-part HTML series ended last week, HTML fans should note that GoLive Systems has released CyberStudio 2.0, a free downloadable upgrade ($19 for a physical package) with many small changes plus noticeable ones like a spelling checker and strong support for frames. Also, Bare Bones Software has just released BBEdit 4.5, which features much improved HTML tables support, support for Mac OS 8 contextual menus, and enhanced backup capabilities. Upgrades for owners of BBEdit 2.5 and later cost $39, though upgrades are free for those who purchased BBEdit after 01-Jun-97. [TJE]
