Softpress will launch its FAST (Freeway Advanced Site Tools) add-on solution for its Web-design tool Freeway 3.5 at MacExpo 2002 today.

FAST consists of several themed suites that introduce new functionality to Freeway. The company is offering a 40 per cent discount on Freeway to MacExpo visitors.

The base product – Freeway – offers a graphical user-interface-driven tool for Web design. Because it requires no coding, it has been developed as a tool to put Web-publishing power into the hands of novices, and others inexperienced in applying HTML code, says Softpress.

It offers a broad base of HTML-standards support, supports drag-&-drop, and offers a selection of link validation and site-structure read-out tools. Designers using the product develop Web sites through a DTP-like interface, Softpress claims.

More information about the product is available on the Softpress Web site. The application costs £165.
