Sounds like you're using the built-in HTML export feature. Frankly, I've always found this
feature to be too buggy to use reliably. I use WWP and find it more than adequate to do durn near
anything I want.

Frame 7 ships with a basic version of WWP--more like a filter, really. It doesn't give you much
control over the tags that are used, but if you use the Dynamic HTML template, you should be able
to control quite a bit of the style. Have you tried using WWP Standard instead of the built in
export filter?
