Please post correctly. As I said, I was just saying what I came to "feel"
that - over the changes in IC, and the posts to the list, I am not on the
Dev Group. I remember talking at some point with Mike and he was telling me
about some editor built into Mozilla that was able to edit the pages. Maybe
an html editor of your choice, I dunno.

Maybe the content editor works. I do know people still use it, whether they
are using 5.4 or not I don't know. I used it myself in the beginning (4.8),
but it soon started having many bugs, at least for me, with rendering and
interpolation. Now I only use VI for its simplicity.

Send an email to the list with a better subject line asking what people use
to edit their ITL pages with (not including CLI editors) - That should be
interesting. Remember not to top post too.
