In any browser you can choose to turn "frames off". That's one other
thing the WYSIAWYGS don't do, is create a page for customers who are
coming through a firewall that sets "frames=off". All my pages have a
"text only" link, that leads to pages that show nil but text. They also
all include "alt" tags for those who must use a visually impaired type
system. These are all things I do as a matter of course when I am
building a site. Unfortunately, most WYSIAWYG builders have no setting
for this!

Wrong! Your site-builder is in need of education!

But it helps a lot if you can MEET the standards!

You just spent a lot of time telling us how it does the job FOR you, now
you're saying it only does what you tell it too.?! I am confused!

Hope you've got a lot of space on your harddrive, because 99% of bug
reports I've seen come straight to the Webmaster.
