Hi :)
I think it's either directly stated or just "hinted at" in a lot of
marketing for word-processors in general.

There is often an expectation that a word-processor is the best tool for
any type of documents.  I've even found colleagues using Word to edit
images, that then don't display quite 'properly' in any other version of
Word or anything else.  Mentioning the fact that other tools are often
better at - for example, desktop publishing - often seems to annoy people
who then seem to feel it necessary to argue against it and then grumble
when their results are not as good as they'd hoped.

Regards from
Tom :)

To keep things simple you will only be able to edit html files created and
saved in Libre Office. To edit all other html files please use a simple
text editor like notepad for windows or gedit for linux. Can you tell us
the source you "read" and "looked up" that made you believe any html file
could be edited with Libre Office?

I have read about, and looked-up, the possibility of editing HTML

not fine 'HTML Mode' or 'View HTML' as talked about in the help files. I
can load my document but can not get at the HTML code.

The document already exists - so I'm selecting 'File Open', I change the
File Type to 'HTML Document (Writer)' and select my file.

That's your mistake: if you select that option, the document is opened as
a Writer document instead of a Writer/Web document. Instead, either leave
the file type as "All files (*.*)" or else scroll way down and select "HTML
Document (*.html;*.htm)". Using one of these, the document will open with
"Writer/Web" in the window title instead of "Writer". Now you will find
"HTML Source" in the View menu.

I trust this helps.
