I have always had this wierd problem with Nano.  It may be with other editors too, but I almost always use Nano.  It leaves white space when I save.  I have a problem with my config.php file in that there can be no white space after the last tag. ie) ?>  Each time I save, I get <p>nbsb</p>  I delete it and save it again and the line reapears.  Any ideas of what causes this?

A lot of editors add extra characters to the source code. My suggestion is to use the best editor out there: Notepad :-D If would like to continue using your editor, a short fix would be to create it with Nano and then open it with notepad when your done. Once in notepad, delete that extra added tag and then save.  I know this isn't the answer you wanted, but consider it a free bump at the least.

I always use the Code View ONLY of Dreamweaver! Works great! And visually easier than NotePad!

Just make sure to never EVER go to the Design View and try doing anything there!

Another good software (free) is TextPad (it also colour - codes just like Dreamweaver and does not add any extra characters).
