"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."
