eJanus idea
 

eJanus-team has the pleasure after months of hard work, to introduce eJanus - a complete software programme for web-design. The strength is the conversion of text and tables into HTML.

Traditional HTML-editors are more focused on syntax and the code itself, instead of design. eJanus is breaking all traditional thinking as when you mark a tiny dot, eJanus looks upon it as an object.
  By doing that eJanus is the first object-oriented tool giving the user what he/she wants -
- If you want to position a picture across a table or underneath text, you can have it.
- If you want to color your cells and tables differently, you can have it.
- If you want to have a site looking like your word-document, you can have it.

Whatever you want, you should have it as long as there are html-solutions.
...and to prove that, this site and pane is entirely developed with eJanus.

That's our philosophy !

eJanus is probably the most advanced and complex "tag" ever developed. Installed and running from any host or server in your browser, as a "common" html-tag, you will experience that power and speed are main ingrediences. The only uncontrolled factor is the cyber-highway itself.

This First Edition  is released for MS platforms running ColdFusion. However tests are going on to implement the "tag" on other platforms and servers ultimo 2003.

Launching eJanus in your browser you will see that all  command-buttons  on top rows are similar to others in Office applications, though some are new.
Every function has a snap-description when cursor is moving over.
The blank pane tells you that you are in edit mode (WYSIWYG-mode) - You are ready to type whatever you want.

Instead of naming this section "Tablehandling" we call it Tabledesign. In fact that is what you're going to do. After a few minutes of practice you will design tables most people only dream of - is it really possible !
