With increasing emphasis on standards compliant, accessible web design, developers are finally embracing CSS both to control web page appearance, and to manage large sites more efficiently. Style Master is the long standing CSS framework of choice, with all the tools needed to rapidly develop, test and deploy web style sheets:

  • easy to use editors for working with all CSS properties (including the increasingly important positioning properties), selectors and values
  • innovative built in help allowing developers to learn the nuts and bolts of the technology as they go
  • CSS browser support information extending to Opera 5 and Internet Explorer 6 (Windows)
  • powerful find and replace and other tools for direct hand editing of style sheets, including color coded syntax and user control over white space in the generated style sheet
  • close integration with other editing tools such as text editors
  • support for WAP 2.0 wireless web development

This latest update includes

  • improved automated creation of style sheets from legacy, appearance based HTML: a great aid in transitioning to CSS
  • better keyboard navigation of the Style Master framework
  • numerous improvements in interface and performance.

Style Master 2.1 combines the ease of use of a WYSIWYG editor with the power and flexibility of hand-coding, making CSS accessible to all web developers.
