Mozilla has released a web page creation editing tool that steps novice users through HTML and CSS. Dubbed “Thimble”, Mozilla bills the new tool a “webmaker”.

Pint on me! Amazing stuff!
Is it just me thinking that if they only valuable thing they've added is pre-done templates with lots of comments then why bother re-inventing the wheel? Why not simply create templates with comments for something like Maqetta?
Does this even support HTML5 or just the plain old HTML/CSS combo's we've been seeing since the days of Geocities?
Re: Just why?
GeoShitties didn't support CSS, just HTML. Also, they are teaching HTML5, just not the advanced stuff that makes it different than HTML4.
What it seems to lack is a way for you to edit a webpage you already have on your hard disk.
Hopefully spoon-feeding them HTML5 will get them off their asses!
