Has anyone else experienced difficulty opening html documents in FrontPage after creating them in Open Office? FrontPage repeatedly crashed on me until I removed Open Office as the document generator in the html header. That's not nice.

Not nice *of FrontPage*.

Seriously, Lord knows what FrontPage does or why. If ya hafta use this kind of product, Mozilla Composer's markup at least doesn't insult user-agents. <font> tags everywhere, sure, but no proprietary markup or egregious ActiveX gewgaws. Run, don't walk, away from FrontPage. Its output is utter crap.

I know, I know. They're making you use FrontPage. Argh.

Note as well that both FrontPage and Composer are unsuitable for XHTML 1.0+. HTML 4.01 max, maybe not even that.
