The Contribute CS5 Software from Adobe is a web publishing and content management application for Mac. Contribute allows you to publish and manage web pages, without the need to learn HTML coding. It uses an intuitive WYSIWYG editor, allowing you to visually create web pages.
Numerous templates are available, allowing you to customize the look and feel of web pages with ease. You'll be able to preview your site in any browser, ensuring that content displays correctly in different browsers. Contribute also allows you to natively edit XML, without the need to open a separate editing application.
To be eligible for this upgrade you must own Contribute 3, CS3, or CS4.

Predefined Content Types
Define content types that specify the design template and review process that will be used automatically when a new page is created. Content type can be HTML or XML
