    Help Pls... <TH> vs <TD> ???

    Level 7
      For same reason my CS3 DW has decided that it likes "<TH>" and creates new
      tables with <TH> instead of <TD>...

      This complicates editing since it prevents me from selecting text within a
      table cell. (also seems to set some of the attributes within the cell)

      I was doing just fine when all of my table cells were <TD>s.

      Does anyone know how I can turn this 'helpful' feature off by default?

      ISSUE #2
      Still trying to fix the forms on my non-profit web site.
      Someone is playing with them. (sending junk email - not even spam) This
      annoys my volunteers who are trying to help people.

      I'm looking at Tectite Formmail for its sender verification features.
      If you or anyone you know has experience with this script - please give me
      some feedback.

          <th> is the table header. When you define the table, just indicate that
          it doesn't have a header. Then you won't have that designation.

            <th> is table header. <td> is table data. When you create tables, is the
            table header box ticked on the table properties pane?

            Never used tectite so cannot comment. I use the PHP Formm@ailer script
            from DB Masters. It conceals your email address from prying eye email
            harvesters and it has several spam controls built into its script including
            hidden field (honeypot), "sorta captcha," and time limits on submissions to
            keep robots from exploiting your forms. Free to use if you credit the
            author; $20 if you don't.
