"If you've used any web authoring application, or even a word processor, you'll likely understand how to do the basics; type and format text, bullets, and lists, insert tables, create hyperlinks, and so on. So let's discover some features in KompoZer that you're probably not familiar with:

"* Better XHTML support - Developing pages based on XHTML in FrontPage is possible, however KompoZer provides better support for this language. Clicking the XHTML option on the New dialog box provides a properly formatted blank page. What is XHTML, you ask? Well, it is an improved version of HTML, which combines HTML and XML. Web pages in the XHTML language, which doesn't differ all that much from HTML, are inherently better written. This provides for better cross-browser compatibility and easier execution or display in browsers on less powerful, mobile, devices.

"* CSS Editor - This tool is extremely useful if you aren't a Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) expert-- like me. Instead of having to reference and follow the CSS rules, the editor can create style sheets for you based upon the formatting attributes you select from the dialog boxes, such as Figure 2 shows. This tool is accessible from the Tools menu on the toolbar."
