Another interesting possibility is to "break apart" Front Page. We use the web
management capabilities of Front Page Explorer (which we like) but a different
editor than Front Page Editor. A lot of HTML editors will work with Front Page
Explorer. To specify a different editor, in Front Page Explorer select Tools,
Options, then click on the Configure Editors tab. Now when I double click on a
web page in Front Page Explorer, it comes up in Arachnophilia which produces
clean HTML, is easy to use and is free. Can't ask for much more than that.
