Subject: Writing a GREAT HTML editor!

After working with the major HTML editing products I found through Strouds
Consummate Winsock Apps, I was somewhat dissappointed.  With this in mind, I
decided to write my own.  Hopefully I will be releasing a Beta in 2-3 months!

This product will DEFINITELY have a "Microsft feel", it's button bars
looking very much like Word or Access.  Further, I will be building in ALL
the features of the 3 or 4 other products, PLUS providing COMPLETE support
for HTML 3.0 (at least as it is proposed) and support for all Netscape
extended commands.

I plan on making this product free for students and non-profit
organizations, but charge a minimal license fee for others.

I would GREATLY appreciate any input you may have in OTHER features everyone
would like to see.  In gratitude for your suggestions, I'll keep your e-mail
addresses handy in order to let you know exectly when the product is
released.  I'll also talk to my partner about providing free licenses to
those people with unique ideas we actually implement.

Thanks all!!!  Hope to hear from you soon!

Cordially,

John-Paul Clark
