Review of Mozilla Composer

Monday February 10th, 2003

Prognathous wrote in to tell us that thesitewizard.com has reviewed Mozilla Composer. The review, from December 2002, praises Composer's table management and standards-compliant code generation but is critical of its lack of support for arbitrarily positioned elements and absense of form editing functions.

Any chance of creating style classes or ids on the fly?

The biggest complaint I have with Mozilla Composer is the issue raised by the review -- ie. that CSS styles are blindly put throughout the document even where there are 50 spans that all use the same properties.

If the editor placed a single [STYLE/] tag at the top of the document with all classes/IDs used, that would go a *long* way to tidying up the Composer HTML code. It would also greatly simplify the procedure to split things out into a separate CSS file, should you so choose.
