HomeSite update; sins of free content

For those who still use (and love) HomeSite, deep within Macromedia’s site is an update for version 5 the Dreamweaver MX version. HomeSite+ 5.2 offers an improved spell-check and search highlighting, customization of the toolbars, as well as some minor XHTML problems. And two of my big pet peeves are fixed: convert tag case no longer converts the DOCTYPE and files now preview properly with Mozilla.

Update: Seems the reason the update is called “HomeSite+ 5.2” is because you actually need Dreamweaver MX for it to work. An update for the standalone is promised for this month. I am hoping it contains the same updates, as well as one to correct the special characters toolbar’s problems). Thanks to Mr. Bowman for reminding me to update this.
