Adobe GoLive CS2

Adobe GoLive CS2 would have been GoLive version 8 if Adobe had not renamed it for the Creative Suite.

Where GoLive Came From

Whether or not you believe that the Internet was invented by Al Gore, the World Wide Web has pushed professional publishing and design to a new level. The tools to help publish rich web experiences have evolved as well. Back in the day (um, like several years ago), creating web graphics and publishing websites of any kind required an intimate knowledge of HTML, Unix-based systems and commands, and more. Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the code that defines how a web page should appear. (We talk in more detail about HTML later in this book.) At the time when Internet IPOs meant instant wealth and early retirement, a slew of WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) HTML editors were released. Similar in concept to PageMaker or Quark, these programs, such as Adobe PageMill, attempted to allow designers to easily lay out pages without having to learn or know how to code HTML. There weren't many success stories. A promotional QuarkXPress poster at the time proclaimed, “HTML is just like typesetting—yeah, like typesetting from 20 years ago.”
