I agree, Frontpage is a pig. But I would not condemn all WYSIWYG editors
due to its lack of merits. I often use a visual tool when starting a new
project, just to generate a few standardized page layouts to solidify the
look and feel of the site. Clients like this, and I like it, because it
gets the decorating out of the way up front. Then I switch to a text
editor and don't look back.
