Web Media Publisher Pro 2.3.9, Part 2

By Scott Clark What makes this tool so special? While the tool functions just like any other editor or word processor, it also offer many features that set it apart from the other HTML editors, such as:
  • DHTML Support
  • Spell Checker
  • FTP File Upload
  • User Definable Buttons
  • Multi-file Search and Replace
  • Internal Web Preview
  • WYSIWYG Tables
  • WYSIWYG Forms
  • WYSIWYG Frames
  • Java and Shockwave support
  • Import Image Maps
  • Convert from Macintosh & UNIX
  • Unlimited file size
  • Drag and Drop text editing
  • Colored HTML tags
  • Web Timer
WMP is couldn't be any simpler to use: simply type your text, highlight it by selecting the text with your mouse, and click on any of the tag buttons in the toolbar (See Figure 1), such as find, spell check, bold, italic, unordered list, numbered list, columns, spacers, H1, H2, H3, H4, H5, etc. You can add breaks, paragraphs, forms, tables or applets to your page by placing the cursor in the page where you want the tag to appear and clicking the appropriate button. The table, form and frame buttons bring up graphical wizards which aid the developer in creating the table, form or frame.

Checking the spelling of a word, or the whole document, is just as easy. If you wish to check the entire document, simply click on the SpellCheck button. The document is checked for spelling errors, and unlike other editors, WMP knows all the current HTML tags and won't balk over them. You can add your own words to the program's dictionary, making the utility very extensible. When you're finished editing a page or project (WMP enables the developer to create a "project" which contains all the relevant files used by a particular page or set of pages), uploading the project to your Web server is also a snap. Click the FTP Upload button and a dialog window pops up which asks the user for the server name, user name, password, project file, etc., making short work on the uploading procedure. You'd be surprised how many people have created a Web page only to find that they don't understand how to get the files to their Web server.
