Hi, Kompozer is a great tool, but when editing existing html pages.... ....guys: you really need to let people turn the automatic code correction/completion OFF.
This can really make kompozer jumping up to profesional editors, since anyone can use it instead of DW or others.
Professional people NEED to turn off the code completion/correction, cause they're using unrecognized code, PAGE INCLUSIONS, realizing other pieces of server side software that picks the html from a kompozer-generated file (and so creating a template)...
This is really needed to people that needs to modify just pieces of a web site. consider my case:
I realized a professional site for an hotel with just HTML and ASP. I definitely don't want to reinvent the wheel every time the client asks me for a new page or stuff, so i splitted the header, the left, the central and the footer into different files and used SERVER SIDE INCLUSIONS.
When trying to modify the central page, kompozer adds <html><head><body> at the beginning and their ending tags at the end. This, obviously, destroys the page layout.
If kompozer can turn off code completion, the client can FTP down the site, modify just the central part and upload it in a second!!!
This can be ether considered a "light" alternative to an expensive CMS. Moreover this can be THE CMS that is compatible with every language/server/stuff/technology/...
I'm not using kompozer JUST for the lack of this feature. REALLY.
