Front Page's paragraph element and line space

Front Page's paragraph element and line space

Front Page's paragraph element and line space


                          Front Page inserts <p> tags before & after every line of text one cuts and pastes into a new document: this results in what appears to be a double-line
spacing between the lines.The only way I have found to remove this unwanted spacing is to manually remove each and every opening and closing <p> tag, and at the end of each
line, insert a <br> tag.

This is tediously slow.  Now I am facing posting 'excerpts' from many books
written by authors whose work is contained within a desktop publishers website
I developed and maintain.  I can't imagine manually removing each paragraph element.
Who out there knows a work around for this absurd nuance in Front Page?  Please help?

RE: Front Page's paragraph element and line space

This is just a stoopid suggestion...but can't you open the html in Notepad and do a search for <p> and replace with nothing?
(I'm sure I'll find out)

RE: Front Page's paragraph element and line space


I know what you are describing, however I can't seem to simulate it.  Which version of FP are you using?

I think rather than a "smart removal" you whould try to prevent them from happening.

What is the application that you copying from?


RE: Front Page's paragraph element and line space

Boxplan:It doesn't matter which version of Front Page...I use 98 at work on Windows 95, and 2000 at home on Windows 98....same outcome.The main application I attempt to paste from is Word from MS Office, but I have the same problem coming from Notepad or Wordpad, too.Thanks for the suggestions.Hohriver

RE: Front Page's paragraph element and line space

Not sure if this will work, but try resaving the Word document in html format and see if it helps.
