Freeway meets the needs of graphic designers who want an intuitive tool for
designing industrial-strength Web sites... without the hassle of coding. It
uniquely provides a fully-featured DTP-style user interface that makes
professional Web-site design more accessible than with any other visual
Web-design application. Freeway's "Page and Pasteboard" environment for
designing and accurately positioning type, graphics and multimedia allows
designers familiar with applications like QuarkXPress to feel immediately
at home when creating for the Web.
Noted for the clean HTML code that it generates, Freeway offers a wide
range of features for the more technical aspects of site production. One of
the keys to making high-end Web-design features fully accessible is the
Freeway Actions technology. Actions effectively separate the creative
design process from the integration of complex scripting for dynamic
behaviors and back-end functionality - allowing creative designers to
concentrate on what they do best. Application of Actions include Web
publishing from databases, development of e-commerce solutions, Dynamic
