Yes, FrontPage seems to work fine with HTML generated by hand or by other
HTML editors. It cleans up anything it thinks is completely broken. It
also shows me broken links, spelling errors, and various other problems
with files from other sources. So I don't have any problem with people
hand generating HTML; it is just that I don't want to have to do that
