Worth the upgrade!!

November 10, 2004 by Rene Bandsma
Really great this new version! Very cool and awesome that users can see the CSS and Fontstyles directly from the pop-up menu!

Another great feature is that this will work on Firefox as good as on IE. And if you get in mind how Firefox is growing...

And, of course, many things are better and it looks that is is faster than ever before! A really 'must-have update'!

Advanced HTML Editor 2.0.4 update.

July 29, 2005 by John Ashton
At last George is giving us a free update to this great product. Now I have a simple question having been burnt by 2.0.2 -> 2.0.3.
Can anyone tell me how to go about installing the FREE 2.0.4 update? I have 2.0.3 installed. Do I un-install that first?

RE: Advanced HTML Editor 2.0.4 update.

July 29, 2005 by George Petrov
You can just install it over the previous version. Then restart DW, complete the install wizard, restart again. Update your pages that use the editor by opening them in Dreamweaver, making a minor change and saving the page. You will see an alert telling you that the Script files have been updated. Make sure you upload the files to the live site

Version 2.0.6 update

June 18, 2008 by Michael Blankenberg

HTML style Enter handling: simple but very usefull!
Saves me the time and effort to explain users to use Shift-Enter for a breaking rule <br>.
