Loads o' fun, rilly. If you're trying to clean up and maintain the HTML
along with the source files, then yes, you're going to have a maintenance
nightmare. If you plan and design the source and filtering templates
carefully, then always go from Frame source to HTML, you'll have much better
luck. Could you describe what you're currently doing?
