Ephox Debuts EditLive! 6.3, the World's First Dual Mode HTML Editor

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - November 29, 2007) - Gilbane Boston - Ephox Corporation -- a leading authoring company -- announced that EditLive! now offers web content authors a JavaScript editor that enables quick and easy editing. The Express Edit feature is tightly integrated with Ephox's flagship product EditLive!. The combined solution offers editors the best of both worlds: The speed of JavaScript and the power of a Java-based editor.

Thanks to its Java applet architecture EditLive delivers a consistent and full-featured authoring interface on all major browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari and Opera) and operating systems (Mac, Windows, Linux, Unix). The Express Edit mode uses JavaScript so content authors can now edit content even if Java is not installed. EditLive! continues to lead the market in supporting the broadest range of environments. Some authoring environments either do not support Java applets or cannot ensure that they are installed, for example interactive websites that allow the public to make edits or highly distributed environments such as online education.

John vanAntwerp of the University of Maryland University College stated: "Express Edit allows us to replace the other JavaScript editors that we run for students that do not have Java installed. This greatly simplifies our architecture because we no longer have to deal with the problems caused by different HTML editor applications interacting on the same piece of content. It also reduces our support workload because every one of our 200,000 online students will be using the same HTML editor."

Express Edit is ideal for quickly editing small amounts of plain text. For richer editing requirements the industry benchmark HTML editor is available at the click of a button. EditLive! is well known for its superior abilities in pasting content from MS Word, table editing, spell checking and image management while creating pure W3C compliant HTML code.

Expresss Edit follows other firsts that Ephox has brought to the WYSIWYG HTML editor market such as Track Changes, accessibility compliance checking and cross platform and cross browser support.

    editor integration for their web content platform to support users that

    or not.
