Hi, Windows users... I'm registered user of Namo Web Editor since it's first release and I have just evaluated it's newest GA - Namo 2006 (Trial) - on my Windows Server 2003 Enterprise
Edition. This new version installs without problems and
runs fine, but unfortunately Namo developers have not fixed
some bugs, as one that enlarges abnormally a web page that
another web editors load normally. One of these web pages
is a page from our customer Latino Portal R+C, online at
this URL: http://svmmvmbonvm.org/noticirc.htm
I decided to rate the GA 2006 the maximum: Five
Butterflies, because Namo is really the best-in-show
in the web editors' world and simply no other can do various important taks that only Namo does.
Folks, if you want work fine everyday as a professional webmaster I strongly recommend Namo Web Editor 2006 Suite. This fantastic web authoring tool have all features that you need for a perfect performance saving time, saving money. Here in @Macarlo Networks, Incorporated we are using Namo for design and edit over 350 websites under our direct administration. For us it is normally open at the same time over 80 web pages in design mode, edit all of them, then check and clean its code using Verify HTML and Clean Up HTML built-in Namo's tools. In addition we are using TSE Pro 32 version 4.40a for complete code depuration because this one can open at the same time thousands of .html pages in few seconds. Recently we have needed to change a banner's code due the urgently request from one of our customers and we changed it in 415 web pages in few seconds using TSE Pro as external program embedded in Namo.

Some months ago I and another Namo registered users have reported
various bugs in Namo 6.0, including web page abnormally enlargements
in Namo design mode (WYSIWYG) and no mouse action allowed in Global Search & Replace function, as you can see in two photos below, but the fixes have not been performed.
The most serious non solved problem in this new version according my evaluation is the abnormal loading for some web pages in design mode (note that the final effect is not affected because uploaded to the web server these pages edited by Namo 6 and Namo 2006 runs perfectly (the problem only occur with its visualization in WYSIWYG). Below you can see five screenshots of this referred web page, correctly viewed by Namo 3.08, Namo 5.5 and Dreamweaver MX and
abnormally loaded by Namo 6 and Namo 2006. All screenshots
made by NamoCapture 6. To see these photos in its original size

of Namo web Editor, an authoring tool with over 2 millions users
in all the world, offers a lot of improvements, including icons
for test a web page using various browsers installed in the
Web IDE, as Firefox, Netscape, Opera and Microsoft Internet
Explorer as the photo below shows:
my evaluation I loaded at the same time 86 web pages in design
mode (in Internet Online option!!) and edited all of them without problems. Normally I use noname.1htm and noname2.htm for sources I want to create new contexts and these web pages haze enormous size, but Namo simply is not overcharged with these ones and supports fine much more aditional tremendous efforts. Only l9% of my Athlon CPU (XP 2000 - 1.67GHz) was sucked, as you can see in the photo below (click it please to see it in original size: 1024x768).
For an interesting comparison I suggest you to try
open four of five web pages in Dreamweaver at the some time
to edit it... you will see a nice crash of this famous and very
expensive tool...Some portions of Namo's code are always problematic but I correct these little problems quickly and easy using TSE Pro 32 Text Editor for Programmers (I recently upgraded my copy to the new version 4.40a - congrats Sammy for this fine release!!). No other problems I've experienced with Namo Web Editor and I decided to follow using it for all web creations here...

With the redesigned Photo Album Wizard, you can
now save your settings when you create a photo album and then reuse
them when you create another.
The Photo Album Wizard has also been improved to
offer a more user-friendly process.
When you select the Preview option, the Tag Selector displays
tags formatted the way their content actually appears, including
such attributes as color, font, border, etc.
Also, the Tag Selector's right-click menu now includes more
commands, including commands to open the Quick Tag Editor for a
specific tag, quickly open the Style dialog box for more tag types,
and open the HTML Reference directly to the appropriate page for a
Namo WebEditor 2006 has much-improved tools for using Cascading
Style Sheets. Here's a list of the most important changes:
With some exceptions, the Formatting
panel now lists all the styles (CSS classes) that are applicable to
the selected element, not just those that are applicable to the
The style list of the Styles dialog
box can now lists styles from an external style sheet linked to the
current document, not just from the document's internal style sheet.
You can edit external styles just like internal ones, and Namo
WebEditor will save the changes to the external style sheet.
The Class/ID dialog box now lets you
choose a class from a list of classes for which styles have been
defined in all style sheets.
You can reorder style sheets in the
External Style Sheets dialog box to change their order of precedence.
The style sheet list now includes the document's internal style sheet,
so you can give external style sheets higher or lower priority than
the internal one.
The Style button in many
element properties dialog boxes now includes an item in its drop-down
menu to open the Class/ID dialog box directly.
When you convert paragraphs to preformatted text (<pre>)
elements, you can decide whether to convert each line to a separate
<pre> element or convert the whole paragraph to a single <pre> with
carriage returns between lines.
In HTML mode, Namo WebEditor now applies source coloring to PHP, ASP, JSP, and
coloring tags in the HTML Source tab of the Preferences dialog box.
