    On the home page, whether I edit the html or use the WYSIWYG editor, certain things just aren't get changed - ie extra line breaks (the bolded titles should be on a line above the illustrations)
    It's pretty maddening. Any suggestions?

    That's why I never use the Rich Text Editor (RTE). I remember I copied a text from another website once into the RTE and ended up with those zillions of <strong> tags.
    The next step was disabling this "creature" for ever...

    I see. I just completely re-coded outside of WP an pasted the html code. That works.

    Is there a better WYSIWYG editor plugin for WP that doesn't trash the code?

    Wysiwyg is for those that don't know code. Writing code in any wysiwyg - is never a good idea.

    I agree with you. The thing is though, that I am setting this up for someone who know no code and would like to change colors, fonts, sizes, etc. like a word processor. The RTE included in Version 2 doesn't have those features, and I was wodering if theres' a good or better that v2 plugin replacement for the RTE.
