What is Contribute?
AdobeÂ® ContributeÂ® CS5 software is a powerful web publishing and website management tool that integrates authoring, reviewing, and publishing in an
easy-to-use WYSIWYG HTML editor.
Increase web publishing productivity collaboratively while simplifying oversight and approval tasks.
True WYSIWYG web authoring enhanced
Take advantage of enhanced CSS rendering, which enables content authors to edit without writing code and to see the results of their edits instantly.
AdobeÂ® ContributeÂ® CS5 immediately updates edits to XML content and Spry widgets.
Predefined content types new
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.
Rich media support enhanced
Easily drag and drop images, FLV and SWF files, or PDF documents into your web pages. Contribute automatically uploads the dependent files to the web
server when the pages are published in predefined locations.
Cross-browser preview new
Verify the look and feel of updated pages in multiple browsers. WindowsÂ® users can view three browsers simultaneously for side-by-side comparison.
In-browser editing enhanced

including Firefox 3â€“3.6 and Internet Explorer 7 and 8.
Inline spelling checker
Reduce typos with the inline spelling checker. Potential errors are flagged as the contributor enters content for on-the-spot correction.
Collaborative publishing enhanced
Establish collaborative workflow processes to author, review, and publish content. Define different review paths at the template level, whether a single
approval for an internal web page or multiple sign-offs for a public page.
XML editing new

pages that render content from XML files or dynamic XML-based sites.
Dynamic website editing enhanced

site content is instantly available for updating.
