Thanks for the information. If that is the solution that
we all have to use for issues like this I think it's a sad
time for Microsoft users. I went ahead and tried adding
the HTML as a component and sure enough it doesn't keep
adding the space back. But then again at the same time you
don't see the page in normal mode. If I want to use an
HTML editor I'll fire up AceHTML and use a real one.
I guess I'm just really frustrated that I've been using
Frontpage since the 97 version and this is the first
version that does this. On top of that Microsoft makes it
impossible to get any kind of help from them unless you're
willing to pay for it. I just don't feel that's right.
I might try adding the one line it keeps messing with as a
HTML component and see if it will let me edit the rest of
the page correctly.
Thanks again for the information. If anyone comes across
anything else please post it here.
