Editing field contents in plain text format. Unless you know how to create well-formatted HTML, we recommend you don't use the Source Tab to edit content. If poorly formed HTML is saved, it will fail to be converted to proper XHTML XML and the Concept Viewer will error when trying to display the Concept.David Jones 2003
