From my web design experience I want to tell you that the black spaces don't occupy a big size. but of course it is inconvenient have a lot of space in your file.

I don't know if there is a conflict between the programs you mentioned, but I can suggest you to use a program like... Macromedia DW or EditPlus or any other program that have a good find in replace function... in that why you can eliminate the blank spaces.

You can replace for example 2 blank spaces with nothing and in that way you'll eliminate the exceeded spaces. Or you can use the find and replace function for eliminating the blank lines.

Till you get a better answer you can try one of the solution I've told you.

The whitespace is unimportant. Each blank line only takes one or two bytes, and if you use mod_gzip this gets compressed out anyway; compare the size of the whitespace to that of a single image that the site carries - if you are interested in reducing bandwidth, attack the non-textual media first.

My Suggestion is that please dont USE FRONTPAGE, if you start using the dreamweaver you will find how much easy and userfriendly dreamweaver is.


Frontpage is just a s*t.

You don't risk anything, you can make a copy of your site. Modify the pages in DW is simple, because it can modify all the pages in the same time. So you will not lose too much time.
