Beirut, Lebanon, 2005/07/19 - mental9Production announces today the release of m9P Editor Plus, a complete rich text editor featuring DERT, a technique for compiling rich text into distributable program. This editor can also be used as text to PDF and rich text to HTML converter.
m9P Editor Plus is a complete rich text editor that features the DERT technique. By default, the application handles text editing with the standard rich text format (RTF) found in documents with the (.rtf) extension. RTF enables you to write text with persistent format and to embed images and objects within your document. To make it easier for you to work with several documents at once, the editor is build as a multiple document interface (MDI) program that can host many documents within a single user interface. One interesting feature in m9P Editor Plus is that it can compile distributable executable rich text (DERT).
As a trademark of mental9Production, DERT technique enables you to distribute your rich text with all of its embedded images and objects as a single compressed and secured executable program. This ensures that your publication reach its destination as intended without the ability to be tempered with.
The executable can be run to display your rich text in read mode only exactly as was originally written and formatted. Building your text as executable is especially useful for internet distribution, where users can download and run your publication as any ordinary program.
mental9Production uses this editor to write textual Portable Document Format (PDF) files and to convert rich text documents to web pages. The publisher found that it is a good idea to provide a mechanism to export text to PDF since PDF files are so common in use. PDF files are designed to be transmitted efficiently over the internet and they can be opened using the Adobe Acrobat Reader. m9P Editor Plus can build web pages by transforming the rich text (formatted text and images) to HTML format. Although the program is a complete rich text editor in its own right, it can be used as rich text to web page converter following the WYSIWYG style.
You can open any formatted text and convert the exact same formats, RTF, to their equivalent HTML tags. If the text contains pictures, they will be extracted and reproduced in JPEG format in the web page.
The editor is packed with lots of needed features. It can speak the text that is opened or written and with its Text To Speech (TTS) engine installation so you don't have to worry whether your system is speech-enabled or not! The application also includes support for the famous MS Agent character Merlin. Auto hyperlinks creates live links to files or sites automatically when you type e-mail addresses, URL addresses, or UNC paths. When a URL web link (starts with http://, ftp://, www.*, or any other legal form) is typed, it will be identified internally by the editor as a URL. For example, when typing mental9Production.com the address will be colored blue, underlined, and the cursor changes to a hand to signify a clickable link. The link will launch an integrated web browser. E-mail addresses will be identified when they start with mailto.
m9P Editor Plus can be used free for one month. To continue using it longer, you need a license. One license per system costs only $62 and it can be purchased directly from within the application. Purchasing the license from the publisher mental9Production is safe and secure.
