 It always amazes me that software developers seem to be able to improve on what already seems to be the ultimate. CoverSite is perfect for homepage designers who have had many problems realizing their visions. Once you start using CoverSite and its WYSYWIG interface you won't have to worry about all the limitations of the HTML format. In fact, the reverse is true - you will realize just how many options you have in creating effective and attractive homepages - since CoverSite supports:

Object positioning and fully object oriented development of your homepage
Java scripts and applets, Visual Basic scripts, plug-ins
Microsoft Channels
Cascading Style Sheets
and more.

This program has many features such as Style Sheet wizards, support for channels, frames wizard, Script Layout which is a special object not supported by any other HTML editor except CoverSite. It is an ordinary script located in a position specified by you. You can also set its size, Java Applet and PlugIn buttons for inserting either Java Applets or Plug-ins plus many more.

This is more like using a desktop publisher than web creation software especially with its ability to position objects using layers and draggable objects which can be positioned wherever you want them with pixel precision. You can also save your work as .asp or .html. There is a trial download and it is well worth getting that and playing around with the program to get a good idea of its full capabilities.
