Re: NVU 0.50 is out

Yes, and it is fine in German :-)

Thanks for translating this fine Editor, that I will support with making 
it publicity on my sites, if I am ready worked on them with it in the 
future :-).

Nvu is right the editor, I have searched for the last several weeks in 
the internet without success under the known addresses e.g. 
"" etc. It gives me the features I have missed in Composer 
and work well on my PC - a little fast editor - without the heavy 
features I get from Frontpage, but don't need for my homepage :-)

I am very glad, that I have found it in this newsgroup, and that it work 
well under my WinXP SP2 (with very, very little bugs - nothing serious - 
in the interface)

I hope, I can use this editor in the future also under WinXP, although 
it is developed for Linux.

Thanks a lot to the programmers and translators for their time :-)

Well, I am going to continue learn more about CSS (have not maked a 
homepage for several years).
