DWT's

I thought that I had read somewhere a while back that search engine's had
problems read pages with or converted to DWT. Is this true? By converting
from shared borders to DWT will there be any affect on page ranking?

it can't be true since they're save time features, in other words, the stuff
is all compiled into the pages when they're saved. if you open one with
notepad you'll see all the code, not the "guts only" code you'll see in
FrontPage.

sometimes poorly formatted or invalid HTML can stymie a search engine robot,
and it'll just move on rather than struggle, but there's nothing that's
really inherent to the general DWT/ Include page features of FrontPage that
will confuse the bots.

So is that stating that all FP code is formatted poorly with possible
error's? Is it better to use a code cleanup program after running FP to
create a site or page?

Nonsense
FP 2003 generates well formed html and the only areas that are non std are when using some of the amateur tools design time if
offers like themes (not applied using CSS), nav bars and specialty webbots
