I've some html from a graphic artist that I want to insert into a page..this page has a series of overlapping jpegs that combine to show a picture. I copied my content in with tiny editor and the images no longer overlap correctly when viewed. The images are in a table and spaced apart..even though padding, spacing are all set. I'd thought perhaps another editor like edito would give me a better shot at lining up images. Tiny content adds to the page with some footer elements. I also have edito installed but cannot seem to figure out how to insert html. .. I keep getting a message about blockquote and I'm not sure how to use it.

Also if you have an editor that makes it very easy to insert html into a page without too much code changes I'd appreciate a response in this thread.

It could be a css file that is causing the image to break.

Look at the table attributes. To find the solution.

Unfortunately, most WYSIWYG editors will change the underlying HTML to suit their particular code format. This is necessary to ensure that 'what you see is what you get', but it's a really bad thing if you need to paste unmodified code into the textarea.

I have found that if you try to add a JavaScript to the page or add a Flash movie without the 'embed' tag the code often gets trashed.

It would be nice if users had the option of bypassing this to paste raw code, but I don't know any editors that allow this.

Only solution (AFAIK) is to use the XOOPS DHTML editor.
