UK & Menlo Park, CA, June 19, 2001 - Xara Online, leading providers of modular web page applications, today announced the release of a new range of animated Text Effects that enable users to add impact to their website and immediately attract the attention of visitors with moving text.
Producing animated text is usually a complex task requiring technical skills. These Text Effect Modules remove these barriers, allowing anyone to create top quality, animated text. The messages can be customized by changing the features such as fonts, colors, animation timing, scrolling attributes and more.
These add to the range of graphic and functional modules from Xara Online that enable both novices and web professionals to create exciting websites with graphics, rich media content and functionality without the need for design or programming skills. The Modules have been designed to 'plug' into any website regardless of the authoring tool being used. There are no downloads or programming required for end users.
The current range of modules include fully customizable web graphics, photo editor and photo effects, message scroller, audio streaming, banner maker and banner space manager, stats tracker, visitor counter and password control as well as a Smart Text
which enables users to dynamically distribute and update their content on their own and others' websites remotely.
"We believe that creating exciting, impressionable websites should be simple and require no technical skills," says Nova Fisher, Marketing Director.
