Ephox Launches EditLive! for Java 5.0

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 16, 2005 -- Ephox has released a major upgrade to its highly regarded cross-platform WYSIWYG XHTML editor. EditLive! for Java is available as a browser-based applet and a rich client control for Java desktop applications. Ephox has partnerships with Gartner magic quadrant 'leaders' in enterprise content management including IBM Workplace Web Content Management, Vignette, EMC (Documentum), Percussion, FileNet, and Open Text.

EditLive! delivers significant value to end users of content management systems (CMS). Authors can easily create and publish complex content directly within Web applications without knowing HTML. This dramatically reduces demands on IT resources (the "webmaster bottleneck") and can unleash the power of their existing investments in content management.

EditLive!'s new capabilities improve the standards compliance of content with Section 508 and W3C accessibility guidelines and its support for key XHTML and CSS standards. Standards compliance is important due to legislative changes around the world and the ever present need to re-use content across multiple sites and devices.

Software vendors and OEMs can benefit from the leading solution for XHTML editing. Developing, integrating, extending and supporting rich text editing capabilities for applications can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Ephox's proven OEM solutions are affordable and add immediate value.

What's new?

--  W3C and Section 508 Accessibility Compliance Checker - enables authors
    to deliver content that fully complies with government regulations and
    accessibility guidelines.
--  Easier to use Styles control -- ensures content structure is separated
    from formatting and results in standards compliant content. Standards
    compliant content is critical for content management, particularly where
    there are multiple standards to be complied with.
--  Improved XHTML layout and formatting capabilities -- professional
    Microsoft® Word-style list editing; HTML forms editing; printing and
    print preview.
--  Integrations for major enterprise solutions including Ektron,
    Ingeniux, Stellent, Schoolwires and vCampus. Ephox is integrated with
    hundreds of Independent Software Vendors' applications globally spanning
    content management, elearning, and knowledge management.
--  Advanced APIs to extend EditLive! features with JavaScript libraries
    or additional Java classes.
More information and an evaluation version are available for download.
