CSS design tool for Dreamweaver debuts

updated 06:50 pm EDT, Fri August 24, 2007

CSS Sculptor launched

WebAssist partners, in conjunction with CSS expert Eric Meyer, has debuted a new tool dubbed CSS Sculptor that plugs into Adobe Dreamweaver for creation of Web standards compliant CSS-based layouts. With Sculptor, once a layout is selected, the user can change any aspect of it, including page width and browser window position. Additional columns can be added to the left or right of the main content area; likewise, headers and footers can be included or omitted with a checkbox. The tool can also display structure of the CSS markup in a tree-like control. Users can select any item in layout tree, such as the body or header to define specific properties. 30 of the most common Web page layouts are built-in, which can be easily modified with regard to page positioning, margins, fonts, and background images. Additionally, CSS Sculptor automatically creates a print style sheet for every design. CSS Sculptor is available at an introductory price of $100 through September 6, 2007. It is compatible with Dreamweaver CS3 and Dreamweaver 8

    might be ok...

    but CSSEdit is way better. I can tell just from looking at the screenshots.

    i've been meaing...

    to try CSSEdit - so not sure which is better yet or not - probably grab this down too and try both out for a while to see which is better_

    But this is way cool since it works as a plugin for Dreamweaver and not a standalone App_

    A cool extension

    I am very pleased with this easy to use product. CSS Sculptor really helps and it's powerful enough to keep up as you learn. I like the way it sits as part of Dreamweaver. You can also create a new page in CSS Sculptor,... I can't claim it's the best but I can claim it works as advertised. The presets are useful and easily made your own. It feels so natural, like it was always a part of Dreamweaver. Just my opinion: well worth $99.
