Adobe PageMill

Adobe PageMill 1.0 took the HTML world by storm when it shipped in late 1995.
At the time, unlike anything else available, PageMill was able to generate HTML quietly while users set up Web pages in an environment resembling a simple word processor. Despite the ease PageMill 1.0 lent to Web authoring, PageMill users immediately began clamoring for more features and flexibility. PageMill 2.0 satisfies many of those requests, with a special focus on layout and other visual concerns.
Adobe’s minimum requirements for PageMill 2.0 call for any Macintosh with 8 MB total RAM (with at least 4 MB allocated to PageMill), System 7.1, and a color monitor. The program lists for $149, Adobe’s estimated street price is $99, and the company offers a $49 upgrade from 1.0, a $69 deal to owners of other Adobe products, and a $79 crossgrade for owners of some competing products.
Seneca Inc. developed the original PageMill and SiteMill products. During open beta testing, Adobe acquired the company and rebranded the product with their own logo.[citation needed] Adobe released PageMill 1.0 in late 1995. It was considered revolutionary at the time, as it was the first HTML editor that was considered user friendly, cited as the “PageMaker of the WWW”.
This first version, however, was also criticized for lacking items such as a spell-checker and support for creating HTML tables. Adobe acquired Seneca in 1996.

Adobe PageMill 2.0, which was introduced in early 1997, corrected these issues with a package that, according to one review, “adds more features than I have fingers and toes…
PageMill with its tables, frames, graphics, and support for form interfaces, makes it easy to lay out a page”.

Adobe PageMill 3.0, released in early 1999, supported embedded font commands and a site-management feature. It was discontinued in February 2000, due to the acquisition and promotion of Adobe GoLive. A later patch, still available from Adobe, fixed a problem with FTP upload.

PageMill was often bundled with other products such as scanners or promotional CD-ROMs, rather than sold as a stand-alone product.
