I have many clients who maintain their own websites and only come to me for major enhancements. While I strongly recommend Adobe Contribute because I use Dreamweaver and it has check-in/check-out capability so that no one steps on each other’s changes, many clients opt for HTML editors instead because they are usually free.
One of my clients recently discovered a problem using an HTML editor with Flash video. When she made some text changes and tried to save them, the Flash video section would not save properly and weird characters appeared instead.
This looks like an incompatibility between the editor and Adobe Flash. I am going to dig into this further and post some solutions. Of course, the best solution would be to invest in Adobe Contribute for the reasons that I indicated above.
