An earlier, popular Windows-based Web authoring program from SoftQuad Inc., Toronto, Ontario that provided both a visual development capability as well as HTML editing. In 2002, SoftQuad was acquired by Corel.
The Web developer programs mentioned in the list are HotMetal, one of the first WYSIWIG (what-yousee-is-what-you-get) developers, and Dreamweaver, today's standard for professional Web developers, now owned by Adobe.
Rubinsky founded SoftQuad International more than 20 years ago and oversaw development of the first structured editing tool, SGML Author/Editor, as well as the very popular HoTMetaL editor for HTML, forerunner of today's XMetaL.
Not at all certain what an electronic bulletin board is, Roth announced - largely through an e-mail newsgroup subscriber - that because of popular demand, he had made a reprint of his final hotmetal edition.
