KiteCMS is based on Microsoft .Net Framework version 2.0 and will therefore only run on Microsoft Servers.

The administration pages will run in Internet Explorer and Firefox on both PC and Mac systems. The system generates XHTML and it will validate using w3c's validator using the default layout. If you make your own design, you will have to ensure the quality of coding in the design template, for the source code to validate.

The system is based on XML and XSLT. All data in the system is saved in XML-files and the XSLT-files are used to present the data for the visitors of the website. To implement your own webdesign you will need basic XSLT-skills.
