To answer a question above:
I'm a dabbler, not an expert. Haven't even gotten around to CSS yet.
I've been using Front Page Express to get what's in my mind down on the page QUICKLY and SIMPLY. Then I use a proper editor to straighten out the code to my liking and apply the more sophisicated techniques I've learned.
Occasionally, before the page nears it's completed form, and again for the sake of speed and simplicity, it would be convenient to go back and knock the page about visually, but without having the code I've added altered, as does FPE and others.
For example, at a simple level...
Say I've completed a page. I've presented my code in logical fashion and carefully laid it out for easy scanning/maintenance.
Belatedly I decide I want to insert a table containing images and text. What might take me ten minutes 'by hand' will take me only two using Front Page Express. But the rub is, that when I go to tidy up the additional code, I find my original coding all over the place and even altered.
You see? I'd like to have my cake and eat it.
This is no big deal. Take it easy guys.
