Hi Ian,

try this:
1. menu File > New > HTML Document. Now you should have an HTML-source-icon between ABC-icon and Print-Preview-icon. If it is not there, see below.
2. menu Insert > Document.
3. Click on the HTML-source-icon. You have to save the file, otherwise HTML-source view is not possible. 4. Click the icon again to switch back to Web-Layout.

Thanks VERY much for the above instructions!! *THIS DOES WORK*!!

I would suggest that these steps are put into the Wiki page on HTML and into the Help screen that is under F1 in the program!!

I have now been able to try LO Writer out in this mode and I must say it's not bad at all!! No colour coding and a few other things missing but - as I said - not bad. I think it could be tweaked into something useful!!

Going in the other direction I tried out Komodo but gave that up as it has a VERY annoying default in that it changes things you code the way *it* thinks it should be and I hate this!! I like to lay things out MY WAY and want it to stay that way. So I have been using Bluefish for the past few days and find it also rather good. I notice one responder mentioned he used to use Quanta - I did too and it's a great pity it was dropped. It was the best HTML Editor I ever came across!!

But thanks Regina, and as mentioned try and get your steps into the documentation!! Also thanks to all who responded to my original question. Very much appreciated!!

Best regards

Pretoria RSA
