Amaya - Free Web Editing Program Download TechsChoice comments:  Right off the bat what I don't like is having to search for basic features.  I still have not figured out how to look at the raw HTML code and when I create a table, it does not give me the option to specify pixels.  I am bound by 100%.  The DIV function is difficult to use because the DIV shows up in the code, but you can't see anything unless you can GET to the code.  How to publish is still a mystery, but I did find the preferences area where you supposedly set everything up.  It did have a nice interface, but needed more basic functions to choose from.

Amaya is a Web editor, i.e. a tool used to create and update documents directly on the Web. Browsing features are seamlessly integrated with the editing and remote access features in a uniform environment. This follows the original vision of the Web as a space for collaboration and not just a one-way publishing medium.

Work on Amaya started at W3C in 1996 to showcase Web technologies in a fully-featured Web client. The main motivation for developing Amaya was to provide a framework that can integrate as many W3C technologies as possible. It is used to demonstrate these technologies in action while taking advantage of their combination in a single, consistent environment.

Amaya started as an HTML + CSS style sheets editor. Since that time it was extended to support XML and an increasing number of XML applications such as the XHTML family, MathML, and SVG. It allows all those vocabularies to be edited simultaneously in compound documents.

Amaya includes a collaborative annotation application based on Resource Description Framework (RDF), XLink, and XPointer. Visit the Annotea project home page.
Aracnophilia By far the most common question about Arachnophilia, one I answer with great regularity, is "Does Arachnophilia work with ..." (name an operating system). Here is the answer.

Arachnophilia is written in the Java computer language.
Java is available for nearly every operating systerm in existence, and certainly for all operating systems in common use.
Therefore yes, unless you just personally wrote a new operating sysem over the weekend, Arachnophilia works with it.
