I don't use Cute FTP, but I can get you started on your problem before I go to
work and the rest of the world gets up, those NoteTabers who went to bed, that

This is the same as when I used note pad. Now that I have Note Tab of course a new browser window opens and I right click to choose "View Source" and then NoteTab opens with the source code in (for all I can figure) a temporary file. I do what editing I want and then click the NoteTab icon to save. Now I have to save a whole new file. Then I go back to CuteFTP and upload. Then if I want to make additional changes I go through the process and now NoteTab opens a new ?Temporary file ... and I have to save it and on and on. I'm sure there is an easier way without saving so many files. The only use I can see for that is to have a history of all the changes, but most often I won't need that. I'm sometime (most of the time) making minor changes just to see how it will look and then I'm right back to the source code and making another adjustment. I assume many people work this way and so I assume there is an easier way of doing this.

get me going in the right direction.

- Hi David,
As Stephen I don't use Cute. But it can't be that different. I'm almost
certain that Cute lets you chose your preferred editor. So it shouldn't be
necessary to use the browser and View|source. Look under Options or
similar. Then everything should work as you are used to.
But I'm a little confused about if you are trying to edit a file on the
server and don't have access to a local copy or not. If you have a copy on
your disk it's must faster and easier to just open it in Notetab, edit it
and save. Then open Cute, find the file(s) and upload. I'm sorry if I
misunderstand your problem or am telling you the obvious. You said you were
a newbie, so I'm playing it safe and assume that you are new to everything :).

NTB, is for everything to do with Notetab not related to clips, basic or
not. If you are interested in clip writing there is a special list for
that. It looks to me like you might want to sign up for the HTML list were
everything related to HTML and web sites can be discussed (I'm fishing
here). Here's the sign up link mailto:Ntb-html-Subscribe@...
