SiteMason Supports Mozilla's Midas Editor  3-11-2003 

Nashville, Tenn. - SiteMason is proud to announce support for Mozilla's new WYSIWYG editing mode in our Page Builder tool. This editing mode (code-named Midas) is a new feature of the Mozilla web browser which allows a user to create, edit, and format text and tables through a What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get (WYSIWYG) interface.



As of Mozilla version 1.3, SiteMason users on any platform can take advantage of this powerful new feature to make content editing more efficient and intuitive. Users will no longer have to resort to looking up HTML tags in order to add extra formatting to their pages. Now, they can simply select areas of text and apply formatting changes with simple toolbar buttons, similar to how one would use a word processing program.



One of the most exciting features of this new interface is the ability to create and edit tables without using any HTML. Simply click the Insert Table button and it will insert a new empty table with the number of rows and columns that you specify. To add content to your table, simply click in an empty cell and start typing (or paste in content from the clipboard). It couldn't be any easier.



For those of you already familiar with our MSHTML WYSIWYG editor (users of Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher on Windows), we encourage you to try out SiteMason in Mozilla for comparison. Our new Mozilla interface should appear very familiar. We have designed it to match the existing features of the MSHTML editor while also adding on more advanced Mozilla-only functionality such as relative font sizing and table creation.



To try out Mozilla's WYSIWYG editing mode in SiteMason, download the latest version from the Mozilla website (http://www.mozilla.org/).
