A Placeholder is an object in Xara Web Designer which you replace with another embedded object. A Placeholder can be replaced with HTML Code, a Flash file or another graphic file. This allows you to embed a great number of services directly in to a Xara Web designer web page, such as Google Adsense, videos, maps, album slideshows and thousands of other available services and widgets.
