Hi,
  I'm having the exact same problems with composer. Mozilla, NVU, and
Netscape composers are problematic.  Eats code and inserts strange code.

If you copy and paste an image in the same table, the path will come up
file:///image.gif instead of original /image.gif.

  It also chews up my links, cutting off the http://www.site.com/file.htm
and leaves me with only file.htm.htm

  Worst of all, it comes up with "done with errors" messages using explorer,
and then I have to dig and find a backup and start all over again.

  It also is inserting several odd characters into the code, exclamations
(") and extra ".htm" on filenames.

  Also, it' chopped off my page titles, leaving me with 1/3 of the original
text in the title.

HELP ????????????????
