Skybound Announces Significant Step Forward In CSS Editing With StyleSpread 2.3

Fenwick, Ontario Canada (PressExposure) August 03, 2007 -- Web designers everywhere have been frustrated with the seemingly endless complexity of CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), the dominant technology used to control web site designs on the web today. Skybound Software aims to address their problem with StyleSpread, a high-end CSS editing tool.

The current tools are essentially text-based editing systems and/or an “add commands via point and click” system. StyleSpread has taken a radically different approach by making the software work akin to a spreadsheet. The company says that the spreadsheet approach has resulted in a number of new possibilities that would either be impossible or excessively difficult to implement in a text editor, such as the software’s unique ability to simplify CSS.

“During our research, we found that CSS is a bit of a ‘black box’ for many CSS designers, especially newer ones. It’s almost as if these designers are taking random shots in the dark, trying random styling commands and hoping to eventually end up at the desired result. “, said Skybound Software’s president, Paul Young. “Our software helps designers to better understand what their CSS is doing, allowing them to tweak their designs and track down problems faster.”

Other tools such as the Firebug extension for Mozilla, and Microsoft’s Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar already allow designers to perform CSS diagnostics, however, StyleSpread allows the diagnostics, the editing, and the simplification to occur all in one place. This results in less application switching and greater productivity, says the company. Skybound is currently taking orders for the licenses of the software on the product’s web site,
