no one seems to have any clues for this one..it does sound odd..
I don't have any strange "" marks around tags..so ??
but a thought..if you send me a copy of your SourceFormat.txt (from DW4)..i'll compare it with mine and see if there is anything different..

yahoo also uses the quotes in some areas..

<table width="750" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">

that's copied from their (yahoo.com.au) html further down the page..I don't know why they do this..and as you have
noticed the code works without the quotes.

I think it works without the quotes as the quotes tell the
browser the value is an expression not a literal string..
yet the value 1 or 0 or 50% when interpreted as either..returns the same value.

you will neeed the quotes though for..eg
<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000" background="../img/tex5.gif">
or the attributes won't work..
i'm not sure you can discretely turn off quotes around digits in DW..well you probably could but it would require
some custom scripting in the configuration files of DW..which i'm afraid is beyond my knowledge..
yahoo would have hand-coded to get what you're seeing.
