Software Description

HoTMetaL was a very early commercial HTML-authoring software, released in 1994 by SoftQuad Software of Toronto, Canada. Based on the SGML engine of SoftQuad Author/Editor, HoTMetaL was released with a free version (HoTMetal Free) and a professional version (HoTMetaL Pro). There was also a "light" version. It received PC Magazine's Editors' Choice Award in 1995 as well as a variety of other awards. However the port to the Mac platform was regarded as poorly executed.
