Covered in this Special Edition Workbook:
In this Special Edition Workbook we’ll preview Xara’s exciting new Web Designer. Now users have an
affordable (around $49 US) yet powerful tool for creating professional looking websites with all the bells and
whistles. And the best news is Xara Xtreme users already know most of the basics because the user interface is
almost the same as Xara Xtreme. And yet the interface has been streamlined and optimized with many new
improvements including (trumpet fanfare!!!) Spell Checking! In 7 languages!!!
Professional website designers can use Xara Web Designer to create fast WYSIWYG prototype websites. And
unlike Photoshop created prototype sites, Xara Web Designer prototypes are fully functions sites with all links
and images and text already in place, including embedded Flash movies like the Xara Xone title above left. In
case you’re curious (and curiosity is good), this entire Workbook was created in Xara Web Designer.
The rest of us can use Xara Web Designer to create really cool websites, just
like the professionals, only better! I’m not kidding. Furthermore, this Workbook
was uploaded via FTP (File Transfer Protocol) to the Xara Xone’s web servers, all
within Web Designer. So there is no need for an external FTP application.
Enough small talk. Press the green arrow and let’s get on with the preview.
