EditLive! 6.0 With Track Changes Announced at Office 2.0 Conference

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 12, 2006 -- Ephox announced the beta release of the first online editor with Track Changes at the Office 2.0 Conference.

EditLive! 6.0 allows non-technical people to create and edit richly formatted HTML documents that look as good as those created on traditional desktop word processors. To the user the look and feel of EditLive! is so familiar that the University of Maryland University College has rolled out EditLive! for its 175,000 online students. Authors save many steps in the online content creation workflow by creating content directly in HTML and can see their changes in real time on live web sites. Control of the whole content creation and publishing workflow is possible without technical staff or webmasters.

EditLive! is the leading cross-platform rich text editor. It is built into leading Content Management System (CMS) offerings including Vignette, Percussion, EMC Documentum and OpenText. Customers of Stellent and IBM CMS platforms also choose EditLive! as their editor.

The important news is Track Changes. EditLive! is the only editor with this feature self contained -- it doesn't rely on external modules so integration is straightforward. It does more than highlight differences between versions. It speeds collaboration on documents, allowing each change in a document to be accepted, modified or rejected. It also offers:

--  Colour coding of changes according to who made the change
--  Author, date and type of each change is shown
--  Text, table and formatting changes tracked
Unique new features:
--  A thesaurus adds to our popular inline spell checker
--  Context sensitive WYSIWYG styles menus deliver dropdowns according to
    what type of content you are editing
--  Content preservation in a browser session means you don't lose your
    edits if you accidentally navigate away from your editor page

Why customers buy EditLive!

--  Webmasters can centrally control and customise the editor interface
    and content styles
--  Copy paste from MS Word into HTML with styles preservation and full
    W3C compliance
--  Guaranteed 100% XHTML compliance ensures your content renders
    consistently across browsers and platforms
--  Accessibility checker for Section 508 and W3C helps authors meet
    accessibility standards
--  Advanced APIs extend EditLive! features with JavaScript libraries and
    additional Java classes
