    I have a question... my girlfriend is writing a page in dreamweaver, and when she opens html files, a command is run eliminating many of the blank carriage returns. Dreamweaver moves things around so that her ul's and div's and p's are where dreamweaver wants them, but she likes things spaced out. She knows it's running a command because there's an option to "undo run command" under the edit menu, but as soon as she does that, the program runs the command again.

    Any thoughts on why this is happening? It's driving her crazy, and she can't find the answer anywhere, but I know nothing about web design! :eek: Thanks!

    Turn off auto-formatting in the preferences menu, there should be an option like that. Also, be sure to use   to make spaces.

    EDIT: Knowing HTML has its benefits.
