    Unbalanced begininstance

    DLoe Level 1
      A template isn't updating properly. It gives an "Unbalanced begininstance" error for some of the child pages. Anytime I open a child, dreamweaver immediately EDITS the file...as in actually make changes in the code...buy adding this text at teh top of the source code:

      <!-- InstanceBegin template="/Templates/drugscreen.dwt.asp" codeOutsideHTMLIsLocked="false" --><!-- InstanceBegin template="/Templates/TemplateName.dwt.asp" codeOutsideHTMLIsLocked="false" -->

      Then when I save the child, it keeps that code. When the template tries to update it, it fails.

      Anybody know the answer? It seems DW isn't keep track of things correctly.

          There is some error on the page. Does the page have both sets of <html>,
          <head>, and <body> tags?
