Error Reading File

  Asked By: Ciera    Date: Oct 29    Category: MOSS    Views: 814

I am trying to make changes to a customized page in sharepoint. The page size
dramatically increased from 46kb on to 4.9 mb. Now when I try to open the file
it gives me a message 'error reading file'. Being new to sharepoint, read a few
blogs and realized that a lot of white spaces are added to the code that
increases the size of the file usually in the form ' 
&#xA '. And
sure enough when I opened the file in notepad I saw ' 
&xA '. How do
I delete these whitespaces. Do I delete this in notepad and save the file( seems
cumbersome) or is there any other way. Would appreciate if someone could give me
a couple of suggestions.

First, it makes sense that the page size grows. You have 'un-ghosted' the page,
meaning (roughly) that you broke its inheritance. It no longer can make
reference to objects in the cache because it has to load/run all of its objects
by itself. It has to take on that responsibility when you modify it away from
the site definition.

Second, I don't know what those symbols are that you are getting in your page. I
don't get them when I un-ghost a page....

Thanks for the reply. I guess then my question is how do I ensure that the size
of the page remains within a limit ( if there is a limit) so that I don't get
the ' error reading file' when I try opening it in sharepoint. Or is there a
program that I can write in the code view that can limit the size of the file
