61<h1>Xinha</h1>
62<p>
63Xinha (pronounced like the <a class="ext-link" title="http://images.google.co.nz/images?q=xena&amp;hl=en&amp;btnG=Google+Search" href="http://images.google.co.nz/images?q=xena&amp;hl=en&amp;btnG=Google+Search">Warrior Princess</a>) stands for &#34;Xinha is not htmlarea&#34;.  It began as a stop-gap fork of the <a class="ext-link" title="http://InteractiveTools.com/" href="http://InteractiveTools.com/">InteractiveTools.Com</a> <a class="ext-link" title="http://www.htmlarea.com/" href="http://www.htmlarea.com/">htmlArea</a> WYSIWYG editor, but due to popular demand it has spawned into Xinha, a generally better version of htmlArea version 3, with a much cooler name.  See the <a href="http://xinha.python-hosting.com/wiki/Examples">Examples</a> to have a play with the latest release of Xinha.

68<h2>Unified Backend Branch - snapshot of 2005-04-24</h2>
69
70<p>
71This version of Xinha is known as the unified backend branch. This work is
72sponsored by <a href="http://www.dtlink.com">DTLink, LLC</a> of College Park, Maryland,
73USA and is maintained by Yermo Lamers. These changes are, of course, released under the
74same terms as Xinha itself.<br><br>
75
76The original purpose of this branch was to modify the standard Xinha distribution such
77that all client to server requests are routed through a single unified backend script.
78As part of that effort alot of cleanup work has been done. Changes include reorganizing
79the codebase, adding JSDoc headers, adding an extensive debugging trace system,
80fixing various bugs and adding a number of management scripts.
