Help me stopping interdev interfering with my javascript/asp/html

Hello I have slight problem with interdev which cost me 30 works of hour already.

The problem is that I have an asp file which generates javascript for a cross-browsing application. In each browser the generated scripts are slightly different.
When I open this file with interdev it automatically changes my javascripts.

It replaces f.e. " to &quot;, < to &gt;
pieces of script like:
var foo;
for (foo, foo < 10, foo++) {
if (foo == 5) {
  alert("foo")
 }
}
is replaced in something like:
var foo;for (foo, foo &gt; 10, foo++) {if (foo ="=" "5") { alert &quot;foo&quot;) }}

Please help me stop this evil IDE from doing this!

Change the default editor for those files to Source Code (Text) Editor, the HTML editor in Interdev treats the code it is converting as if it had been cut and pasted. In which case unless you click on Paste as HTML it automatically converts all reserved characters to what you see. To change the default editor open the file, right click on it in the Project Explorer, click on Open With then select Source Code and set as the default. Close the file(do not save) then re open it.

I've never had this problem. Whcih version of interdev are you using?

Is the script between

<script language=javascipt>
</script>

tags?

Its not VI doing this.  If you think its that evil then use notepad.
If you copy-paste text into VI, it will do this translation UNLESS you use the Edit/Paste-As-HTML menu option, in which case it is inserted unchanged.

When you paste your JavaScript in VI, like from a web page or MSDN Help, right click the HTML Editor in VI and don't select the simple paste but go down a little furthur and select Paste-As-HTML.

This won't give you another type of code for characters, just the JavaScript as it's seen in an HTML page.

I've had this problem.
