3 years ago I started on a "text" type editor, then last year I used FP for a few months...I was like dating one of those pre marrage girlfriend...It messed up everything good I had going! It playes with your code, and turns it into something you never wanted it to be. I'll never use FP again..I dusted off my old text editors and started using them again....FP is more work than it's worth....Want a good WYSIWYG editor? Use Dreamweaver....Good luck.Paul.
