At least in CS3 (maybe version 4) you can:
In previous versions you could use the option to edit source code in external application (could even be something like notepad)
In the menu go to File, Actions, Edit in external application en edit.
To add a program to your external editors in the menu choose Edit, Preferences, File Editors and find Web Page Source in the list.
What about Macromedia's Contribute 3 (not CS3)?
You can edit the source code in an external application. You will have to edit the user role settings and the preferences.
First do this:
1. in the menu choose Edit, Administer Websites
2. choose the right website
3. first option is Users and roles
4. choose Edit Role Settings
5. choose Editing
6. make the option 'Allow users to edit in external application' active.
So far so good. Now the second run:
1. in the menu choose Edit, Preferences
2. choose the option File editors
3. go to the Extensions list and pick the option 'web page source'
4. now add the program (your html editor) you want to use in the Editor list
5. make it 'primary'
6. OK, you're done
Thanks, but there is no "Administer Websites" under "Edit". There is under the "Contribute" button, but opening that does not produce what you mention, i.e. "Users and roles".
I guess that it maybe has something to do with you using Contribute on a Mac and I use it on a PC. You'll have to find these settings yourself or find someone on the forum with a Mac-version if you don't succeed. But the functions I mentioned ar also available on a Mac. I know that because I installed Contribute on a Mac once. But I can't remember the right way to do it anymore... Sorry.
Or you are not having Administrator-rights. You will then have to contact your administrator...
Appreciate you trying. I have a CS3 on order, so hopefully that should answer my issue.
