I have found a minor but annoying bug in bluegriffon...

In my dual view screen on the right screen I need to use < characters for filling in data.

So I have this:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3c.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/loose.dtd">
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    <title>Thank you </title>
    <link media="all" href="%3C#rooturl%3E/rugsummer/css.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet">
  <body><span style="font-family: Arial;"> <a name="top"></a> <img src="%3C#rooturl%3E/rugsummer/hs07_logo_rug_en.png"

This piece: %3C#rooturl%3E    sepcifically is changed by blue griffon itself the moment you switch to wysiwyg.

I want to have this standing there: <#rooturl>   which is a holder to put my own dynamic data in.
So it becomes something like : http://mysite.org  

Only in dual view this can be saved. But the moment you switch do another view the piece   <#rooturl>    changes to    %3C#rooturl%3E
This is a bug.... And not an easy one I think. 

So basically I want this string: 
    <link media="all" href="<#rooturl>/rugsummer/css.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet">

But I get this string if I do a wysiwyg view:
    <link media="all" href="%3C#rooturl%3E/rugsummer/css.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet">

Can this be fixed???

The only way to circumvent this is to keep the dual view open and replace the %3E to > and %3C to < on the source screen in DUAL VIEW mode.

Any change in the left screen causes the %3C and %3E to be changed to <  and   >

I think this can be fixed relatively easy. Instead of converting to < to %3C it would be better to detect that it is already in a <....> construction.
Using counting one can see this can be easily fixed this way.

if < detected  then depth=depth+1
if > detected  then depth=depth-1
