    I am completely new to frontpage and I have a problem. When I try to cut-n-paste something from Word, Frontpage encloses each line in <p> and creates a double space effect. How do I remedy this.

    PS Normally I wouldn't be caught dead with MS, but this is for school

    well what you could do is replace </p> with <br>.
    i hate using <p> persnally, and i always get rid of them.

    from the WYSIWYG (frontpage) if you do ctrl+enter instead of just enter you get a <br> tag instead of </p><p>. wo you could manually edit it from the WYSIWIG.

    did i make my self clear?

    The problem is that MS Office shares the clipboard. Frontpage will automatically try to format the HTML so your text looks the same as it did in Word.

    Use notepad. Cut and paste from Word to Notepad to FrontPage. Notepad doesn't retain all the formating properties.

    You may also need to paste the text into the code view instead of the WYSIWYG view.

    Hey dzeja....if u want to cut n paste, you better do it in the middle window on frontpage (the HTML editor). In this way you'll paste the whole text directly in HTML and THEN you can go and tweak each paragraph separately with the <br> tag.
    It's much better than pasting it in the WYSIWYG page and then having to remove all the tags by hand, etc...

    Dzeja - Are you using FP98 or FP2000?

    If it's FP2000 there is a config setting where you can control how to format the HTML code. You might be able to
    set the <P> off.

    You the "teacher" wants the page to look like it does in Word. This includs pictures and different formatting. Not jus text. And every line is enclosed in <p blah blah blah></p>. I am using 2000, and I haven't found a way to fix the problem. I'll look some more at the config setting.

    Go to HTML editing mode.

    Edit > Replace

    now choose that FrontPage should replace all <p> tags by <br> tags.

    After that run a new search on </p> and replace it by (which means nothing)
