Today Softpress released a Preview version of Freeway 4 Pro, the flagship

products. Freeway 4 Pro continues the tradition of offering professionals
the best possible design environment coupled with the most powerful tools
for the creation and assembly of Web content.
Among the host of new features:
* extended CSS layout capability–with support for absolute, relative
and fixed positioning, and fully hierarchical page layouts ,
* standards compliant XHTML output–both Strict and Transitional,
* Unicode support for multi-lingual sites,
* improved transparency/opacity handling,

* and support for Apple’s Spotlight technology.
“With Freeway 4 Pro, designers can finally create fully standards-compliant
sites employing advanced CSS layouts,” commented Richard Logan, Softpress’
Managing Director. “They can even mix diverse character sets on the same
page, and there’s still no need to write any code.”
