Graphic designers looking to get websites translated from pixels to HTML have previously needed to either clue up on their HTML or get a web developer on board. Adobe is hoping to change this with a new beta product called "Muse".
"Leveraging the latest Web standards including HTML5 and CSS3 where browser support exists, Muse combines precise design and creative freedom with innovative frameworks for adding navigation, widgets and HTML to include advanced interactivity on a site" says Adobe.
Such design tools have been notorious in the past for generating shoddy HTML - anyone remember FrontPage? With Muse, though, Adobe is touting its ability to use the latest standards effectively. I've taken a look at the code it generates, and while it's nowhere near as clean as you would expect from a professional web developer, it's not atrocious and will be passable in modern web browsers.
Muse uses Adobe Air for cross-platform running, and is free until early next year when it's 1.0 release is scheduled.
