SHEF is an acronym for Simple HTML Editing Freeware. I called my program SHEF because it is a simple way to edit simple web pages that are created using HTML. HTML is an acronym for HyperText Markup Language. HTML allows a person creating a web page to mix regular text with special tags that describe the content, layout, or appearance of the text. Those tags are then used by web browsers to format the page.1 The program is freeware because it is software that is free for public use, reproduction, and redistribution. Among standard editor features like new, open, save, and exit, SHEF allows for the insertion of HTML elements like horizontal rules, hyperlinks, images, line breaks, non-breaking spaces, and tables. Simple clicking or keyboard shortcuts can insert those elements or change physical character styles of text including bold, italics, underline, the horizontal alignment, font face, size, and color.
