The difficulty of building compliant websites using WYSIWYG editors has resulted in a wealth of boring websites. CSS wizard is a radical new approach that draws on the consistency of approach the new web standards demand and uses this as the building blocks for starting each new website project. Because the vast majority of website can all be grouped into a fairly small range of standard page layouts, CSS wizard offers each of these via a simple selection as the first step of the process.
A clever drag and drop facility then provides a quick and simple way for users to place each part of the website’s content. Afterwards they can select from a wide range of pre-designed style sheets until they find the one that is closest to their requirements. The procedure so far will only have taken a couple of minutes but the majority of the hard work has already been done. Now they can concentrate on making sure the design looks nice, but instead of having to hand code stylesheets, a range of easy to use editors are available to speed things up.
Because CSS Wizard only allows people to modify the main elements of the page design there is less risk of beginners making changes that corrupt the layout. This may limit advanced users in some areas but by completing the vast majority of the work very quickly, those who know how will have plenty more time to concentrate on the fine detail later.
