I use BigNoseBird Allinone Form.

When I save the file in Dreamweaver, it moves the </form> tag to close before the Hidden Set up Information.  Is there anyway to stop this from happening?

I'd move the </form> close tag by hand - dreamweaver should accept this.

Dreamweaver's good but not perfect - it does some interpretation of your input.

Sorry, but I'm already doing that.  I was hoping there is a way to turn off the interpretation of input.

I'd like to keep this question open.  Meanwhile I'll check with Macromedia.

Thank's BigStar!  April

Dreamweaver does edit your code.  :(

Thanks for points April

Dreamweaver does edit your code yes, but it does allow you to edit it with the raw HTML editor if you wish. did you try this?

Yes.  However, I'm not sure exactly when DW changes the code . . .
e.g.
-When Saving
-When Something in the form is edited
-When something on the page is edited

It is good to know I'm not missing an menu item or something.  Now I won't waste more time looking for a preference or option to change.

I also use FrontPage . . . It does have an option to turn off auto editing of form tags.

Thanks, April

April - I use Frontpage also and find it useful sometimes to flip between DW and FP for certain funtionality.

But no I don't think you are missing anything.
