I had updated a webpage and on checking a new link to the same page later in the week found that the page was empty. On viewing the source I found some code refering to msnavigation no other content in the body of the page. I copied a backup version of the page over to the web to overwrite the page that was giving me trouble. I resaved the web and checked -same result no content. Refreshed the browser, still no changes -missing content.

I opend FP again and on checking found that although the page content is there in the Normal view, in HTML view there is no content. I have not encountered anything like this before and the only solution that can I think of is whether FP coud have got corrupted. Has anyone else any ideas as to how this can happen?

I think it is to do with adding a doctype to the page which I did so as to add a meta statement for emulating IE7. I' ll copy one of my pages and attempt to replicate the situation, and then get back to report whether that is the cause.

No I can't support that explanation. I can find a page with a doctype but that does display ok and uploads. At present, in Frontpage 2002 I have a page that displays it's content in Normal view -the page content is present. In HTML view there is no content, but there are three Body statements! code:

<html>

<head>
<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 5.0">
<meta name="ProgId" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<title>photo_survey_of_freshford_somerset</title>


<meta name="Microsoft Border" content="b, default">
</head> 
<body bgcolor="#FEFEEF">
<body>
<body></body>

</html>

A copy of the page uploaded to the website shows nothing except the background colour. I added the missing content using Notepad++ and marked the page in Frontpage 2002 as Don't upload. I used Wise-FTP5 to upload the amended page to my website. I am using Expression web 2 on new websites.
