TopStyle to Utilize Gecko
Thursday April 15th, 1999
Another tool utilizing Mozilla internally is in development. It's called TopStyle and it's a CSS authoring tool. Little else is known, but there are screenshots at the TopStyle site. Screeshot 2 shows Gecko rendering inside the app.
Thanks to arielb for the news.
Yeah, TopStyle is produced by Bradbury Software - Nick Bradbury originally created HomeSite and not many people know but he left Allaire early this year ... if you read bradburysoftware.com's "about" section there's quite the rant about companies producing substandard and buggy software and releasing it before it is ready ... wonder how much they know about open source ... :)
and Rob...note that HomeSite will use mozilla too

I can see it starting to happen. Mozilla is going to be plugged into everything. I know most fo the work is done by netscape engineers (for now) but Neoplanet throwing developers at the project is merely a sign (hopefully) of things to come. I can see that when IBM, Lotus etc plug Gecko into their products that they too will put more developers at it. I can even see Microsoft ditching their engine and using Gecko. you guys are on the verge of something really big.... keep it going.
Is the editor going to be embedable also? I would be nice with a true CSS compliant "wysiwyg" editor component, that could be embedded in programs like Dreamweaver, FrontPage. Today it is twice as confusing to write pages with CSS in a wysiwyg way, because the editors also have incomplete/buggy CSS support.
