  • Dreamweaver CS4
    Dreamweaver is 10 years old, and what a decade it's been.

DHTML was the buzzword at the time, and by 2000 everyone was expected to be coding interactive HTML experiences with JavaScript. And CSS, having recently been implemented in Internet Explorer 4.0, was the new emerging paradigm for visual design. See the new features of the web's best love design tool.

  • Brianjar ASP FormMail
    This script takes generic form data and sends it as an email. It is modeled after the widely used FormMail script available at Matt's Script Archive but is written in ASP instead of Perl. Extremely useful script, especially if you've got long forms to send. Easily customisable for most asp mailer systems.
