i don't want the program to choose for me what i do. that's why i am
hating frontpage (and html-kit). i made a little mistake in the html and
frontpage thought it was doing me a favor by "fixing" the code when i
saved it. the page was ruined and i had to start over. if frontpage
hadn't touched it, i could have actually fixed it in less a minute or

html-kit on the other hand, does some really weird things when it comes
to the editor. it puts the cursor in unexpected places and does not
allow you to press the 'end' key. well it does, but only when there are
visible characters on that line. if you have 50 spaces and some tab
characters only, the 'end' key does nothing. that's crap. drives me
