Namo WebEditor 4.0

This program pitches its tent in that awkward territory between the absolute beginner who needs a homepage in a hurry, and the small business anxious to establish a Web presence but reluctant to blow the annual budget in the process.

WebEditor is an accomplished yet friendly tool that's well suited to creating both simple sites and complex projects.

Site Wizard is a quick-start way to create a functional Web site with templates and design themes. You can manage and expand your site's structure by dragging and dropping icons in a hierarchical tree, and a useful verifier fixes any broken links. Publishing to the Web is a breeze with a built-in file transfer protocol utility. It's all very straightforward and intuitive, and even the manual is perfectly passable.

One definite plus of WebEditor is source "preservation, which keeps any hand-crafted code completely safe throughout the editing process. Beyond the basics, WebEditor supports JavaScript and DHTML, Cascading Style Sheets and, crucially, database integration. This means, for example, that stock levels can be updated in real-time, reflecting the actual state of play.

The default editing environment is a visual one which attempts to render your page as it would actually appear on a browser, but an integrated source editor allows hand-coding with features such as automatic indenting and line numbering. The program also includes wizards to help with databases, charts or JavaScript, and has a set of image tools that let you perform basic adjustments to pictures from within the program.

Namo WebEditor 4.0 is simple enough to appeal to the complete novice, but it's also sufficiently functional to manage a business online. Although not perfect, it's certainly economic at just under $150.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
