January 14, 2003 - Bondi Beach, Australia - Westciv announces Style Master 3, a major upgrade to their popular CSS editor. The dedicated CSS environment now includes a suite of hand coding tools, integrated with the CSS properties and selectors editors which have earned the application such a loyal following among standards based web developers.

CSS is the web standards way of creating web page style. Style Master’s combination of Wizards, browser support info, easy to use editors and internal previewing mean that even novices can be editing selectors and properties and designing sophisticated web page appearance in minutes.
