Web Office

Web Dr. Examines Your Sites

Checking and maintaining links and graphics can drain your creativity when building Web sites. The Web Office authoring suite features the Web Doctor, which detects and reports broken links and missing images, pages and graphics. The Web Doctor also forecasts the typical download time for each page, based on whether you're using a 28.8 Kbps, a 14.4 Kbps or an ISDN modem.

For authoring, the suite provides Microsoft's Internet Assistant for Word and the Paint Shop Pro graphics editor.

The suite's other components include Hotspot Studio for creating hot-spot images and corresponding image map files, HTML Toolkit with a Web Graphics Library and Web Graphics Locator, and Help-to-HTML Converter for turning hypertext documents into Windows Help files. Mastering HTML is a guide to HTML authoring. The Graphics Library has over 180 images, including backgrounds, starbursts, bullets, buttons and balls.
