My employer uses dreamweaver and his index.html page is in the following format:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML><!-- InstanceBegin template="/Templates/template.dwt" codeOutsideHTMLIsLocked="false" --><HEAD>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
<META content="MSHTML 6.00.2900.2668" name=GENERATOR>
<!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="EditRegion1" -->
<p align="justify">hi there!</p>
<!-- InstanceEndEditable --><br>
</body><!-- InstanceEnd --></html>
I'm not sure how these Dymanic Web Templates work but it seems that there is a connection outside of HTML between the DWT file and the index.html because when I downloaded the file from the webserver opened the file in notepad and made a few HTML-related changes the template no longer worked when I uploaded it again. I don't have dreamweaver and don't plan on getting it. All I know is that my employer uses dreamweaver and seems to get away with making changes but when I make changes I always seem to break the link between the DWT and index.html files so that the Dynamic Web Templates don't work any longer.
Does anyone know what I can do and what i can't do to keep this dreamweaver-file-link in-tact so the DWTs work and don't become plain comments? How does the webserver differentiate which was made in dreamweaver and which wasn't?
