and a quick FYI about the comment on not having to pay for CSS editing, the "free one' in the program seems to be somewhat of a bad joke. It is a beat-around-the bush feature that lets you do something you wouldnt expect it to, and other features are just plain missing.. they may be there buried somewhere, but to a user who just installed it and is testing it out, it isn't very convincing, I did manage to find some of the features after an hour, and you shouldn't have to go into code to correct something that the editor did wrong. The spell checker seems like instead of correcting words it replaces the word and leaves the misspelled word right next to it. Like I said, maybe there is some option buried but to the new user of the product, it just doesn't do it. I ended up just writing my own simple WYSIWYG webpage editor in a few days and have the functionality i need... sheesh

osirisgothra: Every WYSIWYG editor I've worked with requires that I go back at some point and fix something in the code that the macro editor side broke. In my experience so far, BlueGriffon does some things better, some things worse. As to the CSS and rigidity, I agree, but the truth is that this is the direction Adobe went with Dreamweaver and I think BlueGriffin is trying to be an OSS alternative to that program rather than a normal WYSIWYG.

extracting the installer works with Universal Extractor (last version: 1.6.1), when updating bin/innounp.exe to latest version.

The identical problem that Andrew Lee is having is exhibited on my WinXP SP2 PC... Otherwise javascript and image features work well...

Andrew Lee on 2006-08-27 04:41

I emailed the author, and here's his reply: "I'm not sure what happened there. I've re-uploaded it to my website and it seems to be fine now." I have downloaded it again and it seems to be working fine too.

CyberDoc on 2006-08-28 21:51

I just downloaded it again... overwrote the 1st EXE and it is working beautifully... NICE... Thanks go to Andrew Lee for following up with the author... and to the author for a quick response...

I gave it a try and whilst it is powerful in some aspects some of it is a bit weird such as the faded text HTML generator.

vmars316 on 2015-12-23 00:47

Its text size is too small for me to use , and it won't allow changing/enlarging text size .

Throws so many exceptions I`ve lost count. Could be great, but is very poor.
