1. The first impressing thing about working with Sitecraft is that it does not demand of a user to have even the slightest idea of HTML, which is the basic language of the Internet technology itself. No HTMLs and tables! Just write, draw, and drag.
2. Secondly – all the Sitecraft’s “mathematics” stays “off-screen”, in other words, you don’t even understand the way it does “that stuff”. We just grip some element, no matter text or picture, and drag it all along the page looking for necessary position, place one picture on top of the other, make it looking nice – a little more to the left, a little higher, - forgetting all the usual limitations of editor programs used for such purposes. The point is that in generally used editors this very “a little” is either impossible or requires manual inputting of figures into some windows. You see in usual editors everything is “very easy” – “since you’ve start building a site, be sure to know the marking language!” – be sure to know that everything can be aligned right, left or center only, and all your other wishes are excesses that usually remain beyond the technology limits. “Site building is a battle, and if you don’t know your enemy’s language (html), you may not count on victory.” I know quite many designers working well in polygraphy, who easily cope with high-end graphic programs and make some really professional works but are still afraid to start building a site. There is one reason for that – a fear of the complicated technology (which in fact would make him become a programmer) and reluctance to waste his life on studying of those very limitations and technological tricks. And what is more, a designer’s work when making-up requires millimetric accuracy in objects positioning, and there is also the fact that “different browsers interpret the made-up site in a different way” – that’s the end of the world!.. However, it is a topic to discuss in the following item.
3. The third specific feature of our Sitecraft is that to expose an accomplished work on the Internet you don’t have to know anything! You only have to reach the corresponding step of the interface while building the site, which means, to click the “V” button and accept the publishing settings suggested by the Sitecraft. The procedure is so easy that while performing it you start to suspect that the Internet experts that keep telling us about the difficulties of site positioning in the net, are just making their business on us on the spot! It turns out that everything is easy in fact, if the program you decided to use had been designed by competent and clever people who would not let themselves disregard the “trifles” and would not speculate
on these “trifles” as to your incompetence in internet technologies. Moreover, it turned out that it is possible also, one way here, the other way there, to make the (different) browsers display the same picture, with all the mechanics imperceptible for an artist (an artist here is anyone who have tried to create his or her own world on the “clean sheet” of the screen). The picture just looks the same and that’s all!
