Ray Daly

On the web I develop web apps and contribute content. This site features 15 years of JavaScripts, some ancient history and some articles.

Design and Marshall McLuhan are my other interests. I like Design (with a big D), home design and DIY remodeling.

The 15 years is about up so I'm planning on leaving my day job soon. Looking for a startup and web app consulting.

HTMLjive Released

HTML editor in Javascript

Dunn Loring, VA -- HTMLjive, an Internet Web page editor was released today by OnServices. This editor is NOT a program which must be downloaded and run on your computer. Rather, using any Javascript compatible Web Browser, such as Netscape 2.0, any user on the WWW simply access a Web page which contains HTMLjive. This HTMLjive page then allows any intermediate Internet user to start creating their own Web pages without having to purchase a HTML editor.

While HTML pages can be created with a simple text editor, most authors use an HTML editor to make it easier to place the HTML format commands (tags) into their text. HTMLjive uses Javascript to place interactive button on a Web page. By simply clicking on the buttons the proper HTML code is placed into the text. This is much easier than memorizing the codes and proper syntax. When the user's document is complete in HTMLjive, the user can 'cut and paste' the document into their own application. For example, they could email it to a service provider who hosts Web pages. HTMLjive can also be incorporated into websites which will automatically accept documents.

"HTMLjive is a small step, but important step, in allowing a wider audience to put information on the Web. I fully expect to see this type of code incorporated into many of the new interactive websites like message centers and chat areas, " said Mr. Daly of OnServices. "Intranets in corporations are also expected to use this type of technology to allow their associates to produce Web documents."

HTMLjive features include:

For this release, HTMLjive supports the most commonly used tags. These include:
