Yep, don't like that "feature" either ... best web editor I've found is
Macromedia Dreamweaver if you like to hand edit code and use WYSIWYG.
If Nvu had that option to "Don't reformat code" I would probably be more
than happy using it ... it even messes with comments and Javascript.

Well if you don't need WYSIWYG then Bluefish is a good code based editor
similar to the old Homesite before Macromedia bought it.
