WeBuilder 2008 is a novel professional editor for web pages, that combines ease and agility with flexibility and powerful utilities. We may say it’s novel because it joins in one program the possibility of creation and edition of PHP, HTML, XHTML, CSS, JavaScript, WML, ASP, XML, VBScript, SSI and Perl files among others. It has a comfortable and agile interface that will allow you to program and sketch web pages quickly and easily. Besides, if you’re a beginner, you’ll be able to use the HTML and CSS code wizards, which will help you to materialize your projects step by step. It works on Windows 2000, 2003, XP and Vista.
After trying the program, you’ll be able to choose between two types of licenses with very affordable prices :professional license ($69.85) and personal license ($49.85).

Here are the main features and benefits that you’ll obtain using this program:

Working with projects: in order to organize your work when you're working with different web sites at a time, you’ll be able to create projects and subfolders to organize the files of several formats. You’ll be able to identify the projects with suitable names and assign them directory paths.

FTP/Web Uploading and Downloading: either you work with projects or files, you’ll be able to open files from an FTP server or from a Web site. Likewise, after editing them, you’ll be able to save them into your local disk or upload them directly to your FTP server. Using the “publishing” option, you’ll be able to save a local copy and, at the same time, upload the file to the FTP server.

Using templates: it counts on a variety of templates that you’ll be able to create your own web pages, by customizing their code. Likewise, you’ll be able to create your own templates to reuse them afterwards.

Tools for text editing: the search bar will provide you a quick access to search commands and text replacement, as well as the possibility to find matching brackets; you’ll be able to use “bookmarks” to mark specific positions within your texts; you’ll be able to search and replace series of texts, based on regular expressions; the Auto Spell Check will help you to correct the incorrect words, since it’ll be highlighting those unrecognized words for the language you’re using.

Main tools for code edition:
- Extended Clipboard: this tool will gather expressions that you’ll be able to reuse, just by dragging them to your text sheet.
- Realtime Syntax Check: this tool activates when you start or erase a code line, and will automatically check the syntax, highlighting the errors. (Available for PHP and Ruby language)
- Inspector: This tool displays the attributes supported by HTML tags, inserted in the code. If you change the attributes' values, using the edition fields provided by the Inspector, the code will automatically update.
- Auto complete: in order to speed up the writing, this tool will show you a list of elements and valid attributes to insert directly by clicking with the mouse.
- Language Browser: depending on the language, this tool will go showing the main scripting languages and markup languages, that you’ll be able to insert by double-clicking on your code.
- Library: it includes code segments that you’ll be able to insert into your document to write programs quickly and correctly. You’ll be able to organize the library using folders and subfolders.
- Internal Preview: for you to be able go checking the outcome of your code, the Preview tab will show you a preview of your web without the need of closing the programming environment.
