HAHTsite 2.0

-- by Serdar Yegulalp

HAHTsite 1.0 blazed a new trail for Web developers; its 2.0 revision fills in a few potholes.

HAHTsite is an integrated Web development environment and publishing tool that keeps all possible elements of a Web site-HTML pages, images, links, database extensions and so forth-as hierarchically stored objects in one HAHTsite project file. This not only makes editing and publishing easier and more flexible, but also simplifies global changes across a site. (See WinLab Reviews, February.)

This upgrade sports a sleeker, more visually appealing HTML editor. It has an imperfect WYSIWYG interface, but an edited document now looks more like its to-be-published form. A new wizard lets you develop frames interactively.

Another new feature I liked was the site mapper, which produces a view depicting how every object on the site interconnects. Also, the image and image-map editors have been streamlined considerably.

HAHTsite is powerful software for serious site developers. With these new features, it just got better and makes our Recommended List.
