Wondered how your web page looks in different browsers before your page goes live?
This has been always a pain point for content authors, because each browser displays the content differently. With Contribute CS5, we address this issue by providing ‘Compare Page Display’ option. So, when a user creates a web page or edits it, and, before he publishes the page, he can click the Compare Page Display button. Contribute displays the web page in three of the most popular browsers – IE, Firefox and Webkit (which is the core of Safari and Google Chrome). Now, the user can compare the web page display side-by-side in all the 3 browsers, and make changes, if necessary.
You can edit web page source in an external application to make quick modifications or to do testing, such as link checking or accessibility testing. Contribute opens the source in an external editing application. Editing web page source in an external application is very different than the editing experience in Contribute.

Contribute being a Simple WYSIWYG tool how power user would add codes on fly? For example, you can insert code snippets that run video or audio files in your web or blog pages. However, you can add code snippets only if the website Administrator has granted the relevant permission to your user role.
If the website Administrator has not enabled the Allow HTML Snippet Insertion option for your user role, the HTML Snippet option in the Insert menu will be disabled. However, this option is enabled by default, for blog entries.
