In response to the current thread concerning HTMLEdit, our Desktop
HTML editor, I enclose the public / press release note.
Version 1.20 includes better support for UNIX filenames and extensions,
and minor operation changes in response to user feedback. It has been
sent to all purchasers free of charge (about 2 weeks ago!).
We are still working on the demo version, but getting the manual and
packaging finished is top priority at the moment.
HTMLEdit is now officially available, although the manual and
packaging are still in production.
As a result, all copies will be dispatched by e-mail, with
suitable documentation. The full, packaged release will follow
Due to the extensive nature of HTMLEdit's facilities, and onging
development, HTMLEdit has become a commercial project. This allows
us to offer technical support for users, and keep the system a*
of future developments.

Demo Version Status
At present we do not have a demo version available, as we are
not in favour of "crippleware" save-disabled versions. Any
demo produced would be fully functional, but would lack some of
the more advanced features. If you missed the feature list the
first time, it is included below.
If you still need a demo, (remember the package only costs 30
so it won't make a hole in your pocket!), contact us, and we will
keep you informed of developments. However, a demo is unlikely
to appear for at least two months.
