Hermetic Systems has released two new programs of interest to people who write their own web pages using tables and PNG images.
HTML Table Creator Tool: There are online table generators which generate code for simple HTML tables, but these are not adequate for creating complex tables with various cell sizes and contents. ‘HTML Table Creator Tool’ is an interactive TABLE generator which handles COLSPAN and ROWSPAN, thus enabling creation of complex tables with cells larger than 1 row by 1 column. Individual cell specifications can include cell content (which can itself include HTML code), font name, font size, color, alignment, etc. A cell specification can be copied to other cells, or all cells in a row or column, thus allowing rapid development of tables. Table specifications can be saved and later loaded for re-use. The user manual includes four mini-tutorials which demonstrate graphically the use of the program. Further information is available at: http://www.hermetic.ch/htc/htc.htm
Stego PNG: This is an easy-to-use steganography program which allows you to hide a file of any type (text, image, spreadsheet, etc.) in a PNG image file (with the use of an encryption key), so that the appearance of the image is unchanged and the presence of the hidden file is undetectable. The hidden file can be extracted only by someone who knows the key used to hide it. This is useful for hiding a copyright notice (or a message) in a PNG image on a web page. For example, suppose you have taken a lot of great photos and uploaded them (as PNG files) to some website which is viewed by many people. If you wish to add a copyright to an image, but don’t wish to add visible text to the image then you can add a ‘watermark’ in the sense of hiding a copyright notice within the image. If you later find your photo has been used by someone on some web page without your permission then you can download the image and verify that your copyright notice can be extracted from the file, then you can inform the unauthorized user of this. Your copyright notice can also be in the form of an image file. Further information is available at: http://www.hermetic.ch/stpng/stpng.htm

Hermetic Word Frequency Counter Advanced Version is a Windows program which has been published for several years by Hermetic Systems. It allows a user to define what characters may appear in a word, and it counts all words or selected words and phrases in one or more text and text-like files (including HTML and XML files). Common words such as ‘the’ can be ignored. Results can be displayed in a variety of formats, and can be exported to a file which can be read into Excel for further processing. The program can also create an Excel-readable table of the frequencies of words vs. files in which they occur. (There is also a basic version which counts all words in a single file.)
Hermetic Systems has now released a version of this program which counts not only all words in multiple files but also counts all phrases. Or more exactly, all phrases consisting of a user-specified number of words (minimum to maximum) which occur at least a user-specified number of times.
Both the basic and advanced versions have proven useful to many people for a variety of purposes, such as creating a concordex from a corpus of texts, creating an index for a book, or simply finding what words and phrases occur most often in a file or in a set of files.
User licenses for both the basic and the advanced versions are available as 3-month, 1-year and perpetual licenses. A perpetual user license for the Advanced Version costs US$59.75 (a license for the basic version costs US$38.75). The product page for the Advanced Version is at http://www.hermetic.ch/wfca.htm and a description of the new count-all-phrases function is at http://www.hermetic.ch/wfca/phrases.htm A trial version is freely downloadable.
