I loved this toolkit if only for the WYSIWYG Table Wizard. I've been hunting for one of these for days and surprisingly this seems to be the only one there is that isn't attached to an HTML editor. A lot of people, and I'm one of them, find table design a bit of a pain in the tender parts but this makes it easy. The toolkit consists of 5 different programs all WYSIWYG except the editor:

Visual Table&Form Wizard :

        Rows and columns spanning

        Inserting and removing of rows

        Inserting and removing of columns

        Ability to save table in TigerII Tools format for future editing

Visual Map Wizard (Image Mapper):

        Creating shapes: rectangle, circle, polyline

        Area cloning

        Adding and removing handles of defined areas

        Locking areas to prevent accidental moving and resizing

        Assignment of JavaScript events to defined area

Image cutter:

        Unlimited splitting lines

        Accepts BMP, JPEG, GIF

        Saves BMP, JPEG

        Saves HTML Table on demand

Gallery Wizard

        Automatic generating of thumbnail images

        Add navigation mechanism to gallery

        Scaling of images

TigerII MiniPad : Text editor with syntax highlighting for HTML, Perl, PHP and Pascal
These are all very simple tools to use and make life so much easier for weary old designers like me and the author deserves credit for putting such a diverse package of tools together which are quick and easy to use and at such an amazing price. This is a "must have" package for anyone who designs web pages. You can download a trial version which is fully functional but limited to 39 uses. If there is one small niggle it is the English translation which is poor but understandable but as it doesn't detract from performance it keeps the 5 stars.
