PageSpinner 3.0 Enhances HTML Editor -- Optima System has released PageSpinner 3.0, beefing up the HTML editor with new features and better support for multiple markup languages. (See our review of PageSpinner 2.1 starting with "Spinning the Web, Part 1: Trade-offs and PageSpinner" in TidBITS-384.) The new version now recognizes HTML 4.0 and XHTML 1.0 tags, includes a built-in HTML checker, and improves support for Web pages created in graphical HTML editors. PageSpinner 3.0 also enables direct editing of files stored on FTP servers, and includes commands for working with server side includes. PageSpinner 3.0 is a free upgrade for registered users of version 2.0 and higher; otherwise, the program costs $30. The new version, a 1.9 MB download, can be used as a demo for 21 days. [JLC]
