#6 Problems...

I am not sure whether these problems are scheduled to be addressed, but here it is:

1. When you click on the source tab on the bottom, all the tabs on the top disappear. 2. The editor converts entries to HTML escape codes. I do not want that. Example,line below:

<a href="{|OUTPUT_HREF|}&OutputTarget=excel" title="Export to Excel Format">

is converted to: <a href="%7B%7COUTPUT_HREF%7C%7D&amp;OutputTarget=excel" title="Export to Excel Format">

Thanks, but I put those values there for a reason, don't mess with it.

3. No line numbers. This is a must, since some browsers give you the error as a line number 4. No line wrap 5. What's the point of the chevron to the right of Nvu Site Manager, if you can't drag it anywhere 6. What's the point of the dropdown image to the left of Nvu Site Manager, if you can't drop it down 7. There is no Intellisense when writing code

Anyway, as it stands now, this tool is more of a HTML builder rather than a serious dev tool.
