I use VS.NET to edit direct-mode pages; however I use notepad  too. Using
FrontPage can cause the webbots that represent the linkbars to save  in a
way that results in render issues.

Be sure to open the file from the "60 hive" on the c: drive rather than
the http: location  of an instance page.

Backup, backup, backup, then edit usually in Notepad (since the servers don’t have fancy apps installed).

Check out Notepad++ on www.SourceForge.net. It’s free, offers tabbed notes, slick zoom in/out, and syntax colorization for many file types (including HTML/ASPX).

Being said that make sure you open the files through the file system and not through HTTP.
