Miva Overview
Miva Empress is free with Blue Reef Virtual Servers. Miva, formerly Htmlscript, is a web applications development system that provides support of new HTML-like tags that allow developers to create complex applications with little to no programming experience. The Server-based engine, called the Miva Empressa Engine, functions as a preprocessor which reads the Miva tags and markup language syntax and then outputs the HTML to the browser.

Miva works with Java, JavaScript, VBScript, and all browsers. Miva is also supported by HoTMetal PRO 5.0+ from SoftQuad, a powerful development suite for authoring and publishing sophisticated Web sites.

For more detailed information about the Miva Script, site administrators should consult the Installing Miva
