Xara Web Designer

Xara Web Designer is unlike any web editor you will have seen before; an easy template based solution that gives you total page design freedom, no HTML skills required. Web Designer gives you total design freedom using drag and drop you can literally place anything, anywhere on the page. And things which are normally difficult to achieve in HTML are a snap in Web Designer for example text with curved edges, text or graphics at an angle, text flowing around objects no problem! Working with industry standards is vital, so Web Designer sites are W3C compliant, cross browser compatible (IE 5.5, Firefox, Safari, Chrome) and XHTML, CSS standards based. It can also import a huge range of files types for vector graphics, image and text including PDF, RTF, RAW, PSD, TIFF and of course JPEG, PNG, GIF. Whether you customize one of the bundled templates or create your own graphics or animations, it s genuinely WYSIWYG what you see in Web Designer is exactly what you get on your website.

Traditional web authoring tools are really just HTML editors, they are designed to create text layouts, providing few graphical capabilities. And yet it s evident that the vast majority of modern websites are of a graphical nature. We believe you should have complete freedom to include anything text, graphics, photos anywhere on the page, using just one tool. And you shouldn t need to know, or even see, the HTML that goes into creating your site, any more than a car driver needs to know how an engine works.
