Editorial Review

With GoLive CS2, you have the power of an easy-to-use WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) Web design tool that is compatible with the latest Web standards. Take full advantage of CSS and take your ideas to new places with powerful mobile authoring tools based on CSS/XHTML, SVG Tiny, SMIL, and other global standards.

View changes to mobile and Web content in real-time with GoLive CS2's advanced live rendering engine.
Visualize It
With GoLive CS2's enhanced live rendering engine, you can preview changes to Web and mobile content in real-time. Use this feature to view your ideas quickly and effortlessly via an Opera browser-based environment that supports Small-Screen Rendering (SSR). With this version of GoLive you can also quickly harness the power of CSS with CSS prebuilt block objects. Drag and drop prebuilt CSS elements, such as a three-column layout with fixed right and left columns and a liquid center, to quickly build standards-compliant CSS pages that you populate with text and images. Plus, you can use a visual CSS layout window to create standards-compliant code that renders faithfully on mobile devices and Web browsers. Or, code by hand and verify syntax easily. Meanwhile, you can select and manipulate CSS DIVs or their content more easily and efficiently than ever before.

GoLive CS2 also boasts tight integration with Adobe InDesign CS2--Adobe's newest version of its leading print production software--so you can share designs across your print and Web-based projects. Transfer InDesign assets to GoLive with drag-and-drop ease, open an InDesign package in GoLive and export to XHTML to jump-start your site, or flow tagged InDesign content into CSS templates. You can also choose which InDesign page elements you want to import into a GoLive Web project. Plus, you can hide or show content organized on layers in an InDesign package, such as alternative layouts or localized versions of pages. GoLive also offers warnings for automatic page creation so you can detect errors and problems that arise during your use of InDesign with GoLive.

Share designs across your print and Web-based projects; GoLive CS2 is tightly integrated with Adobe InDesign CS2.
Develop Your Own Way
If you like to get down and dirty with your coding, GoLive is built for you, too. You can open GoLive in a comfortable, code-only mode that is great for developers who still want access to GoLive's site management features, but don't need the visual layout tools. And if you like a little of both, there's also a split view mode for CSS development that allows you to view source code side by side with either a visual CSS layout window or a large real-time rendering window. Because GoLive is built to keep you in tune with the latest Web standards, it offers batch conversion from HTML to XHTML, allowing you to transform, in one fell swoop, existing HTML Web pages and sites into more flexible, standards-compliant XHTML Web pages and sites. If you're a real whiz, GoLive CS2 ships with an enhanced SDK for application development that lets you easily extend the capabilities of GoLive using an XML and ECMAScript-based environment.

Managing and updating your site has never been easier with this version of GoLive. Secure WebDAV and secure FTP clients are built-in, both with support for SSH and SSL connections. Easily upload, update, and manage all your files on a server using these state-of-the art security protocols. Meanwhile, GoLive CS2's collaborative asset management tools allow you to track your team-based projects using popular content versioning systems like Perforce, CVS, or Version Cue. Or, you can use Local/Network File System Directory Versioning.

Easily author and validate standards-compliant CSS content for mobile devices using simple visual tools.
Go Mobile
Designing for the mobile Internet and mobile clients can be challenging due to a multitude of formats and platforms. Fortunately, GoLive CS2 eases the burden with a number of tools that will maintain your sites' compatibility across a broad range of standards. At the top of the list are new mobile CSS features such as visual CSS authoring for mobile devices. Now you can easily author and validate standards-compliant CSS content for mobile devices using simple visual tools. You can also take advantage of Web-based project conversion from existing table-based Web sites to a mobile CSS layout. Plus, you can query and validate CSS Levels 1 and 2 and mobile profiles with meaningful feedback that helps you achieve standards compliance.

GoLive CS2 boasts a number of other built-in tools to help you develop for the latest mobile devices. First, MPEG-4/3GPP interactive video development tools allow you to optimize video output. You can also add interactivity with mobile video editing tools that support MPEG-4 and 3GPP standards. Next, Visual MMS authoring and batch MMS conversion tools give you a complete and intuitive interface to create Multimedia Messaging Service templates for slide shows and text messages. Meanwhile, you can quickly batch convert MMS content for deployment on leading mobile devices. There's also a Six Apart TypePad and Movable Type authoring environment for adding mobile blogging capabilites to your sites, as well as visual authoring tools for NTT DoCoMo i-mode iconography, and SVG-t and SMIL-based content. Lastly, GoLive CS2 ships with onboard phone skins and device emulation so you can view your sites as they would appear in standards-based mobile browsers and visually emulate how your MMS documents will render on mobile devices from Sony Ericsson and Nokia.
