"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

no one seems to have any clues for this does sound odd..
I don't have any strange "" marks around ??
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..

This is what i am saying

cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" height="116"

All "  are not need just like have it

yahoo also uses the quotes in some areas..

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

that's copied from their ( 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
<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.
