Introduction

Xara Web Designer MX Premium is a web design program that includes readymade webpage and website templates within the Designs gallery. Just pick any web design with individual web graphics, complete pages, or pre-built multi-page sites. Customize it as required. You can customize the web graphics too, or create your own vector graphics, import and edit photos, apply animated effects and animated transitions to the layers and page links on your website. In addition, you can create web-based slide-show style presentations, Flash animations, and text layouts. The Designs gallery also includes a collection of interactive chart and graph widgets, and e-commerce widgets such as one for Paypal. All these work great with no HTML or Javascript skills required.

All the sites created by Xara Web Designer MX Premium are W3C compliant, cross-browser compatible (IE 6+, Firefox, Safari, Chrome) and XHTML, CSS standards-based.

Xara Web Designer MX Premium is from Xara, a company based in Gaddesden Place, UK. Other than Web Designer MX Premium, Xara also creates other graphic software such as Xara Designer Pro 7, Xara Picture Editor, Xara Xtreme 5 Pro, Xara 3D Maker 7, etc. You can learn more about their products and download a trial version of Xara Web Designer MX Premium from their site.
