How can I keep MSVS from screwing up my code?

Rossamino asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-26
I'm just trying to write some HTML tables and stick some text in there and VS 6.0 keeps rearranging the text.  Apparently there's a maximum of 80 characters / line before it inserts a return and any time there's an "=" in the text it inserts three blank lines.  It also changes every tenth space to html for a non-breaking space, " ".  If I edit in either the Source window or the Design window to format everything so my little mind can make sense of it, as soon as I leave and come back it's all screwed up again - exactly - like it was before.  There must be an option I'm missing or something.  What gives.
