Chapter 20. Graphical Editors > Netscape Composer

Netscape Composer

While Netscape Composer doesn’t exactly belong in the same class as the other graphical editors discussed in this chapter, it’s worth covering for one primary reason—it’s free. It’s also gotten a bad rap from some Web authors, perhaps because earlier versions were partial to Netscape-only elements and the code tended to be a bit messy. The fact that Netscape Communicator (the main version of Netscape’s software in the late 1990s) went quite a while without significant updates also hurt Composer, because it was stuck at a particular support level of HTML for quite a while.

Composer has been updated for Netscape 6.x, however, and it turns in a decent performance. It’s part of the standard Netscape distribution, which now incorporates all the modules (Web browsing, e-mail, newsgroups, and Composer) that used to comprise Netscape Communicator. In Netscape 6.x, all you need to do is choose File, New, Blank Page to Edit to begin working with Composer.
