Fourth World Releases WebMerge 1.7

LOS ANGELES, California – 4 September, 2001 Fourth World today released
WebMerge 1.7, a tool for Mac OS and Windows which generates static Web
pages from database files. The new version offers even greater flexibility
for the layout of index pages, along with a few minor big fixes, and minor
enhancements to its AppleScript support and documentation.

WebMerge 1.7 can work with any database that exports in Merge or
tab-delimited format, including FileMaker Pro and Microsoft Access. The
user creates a template HTML page with simple place holder tags, and
WebMerge creates a new HTML page from the data in each record of the
exported Merge file. WebMerge can also create an index page with links to
each of the generated pages. Generated pages can be hosted on any Web
server without the need for a specialized database hosting solution.

“Customers have been very happy with the flexibility for index pages we
added in version 1.6,” said Richard Gaskin, president of Fourth World.
“With the new options for selectively applying links and images on the
index page, there’s almost no index page design that can’t be accommodated
with a template in WebMerge.”

Early customer feedback has been extremely supportive if this addition. “I
must say…this is a beautiful thing! WOW! This will save us so much time,”
reports Nina Christensen of Talaria Enterprises Museum Store.

WebMerge 1.7 also provides a new AppleScript command that lets you set the
index page template from other programs on the fly.
