but stupid. I'm taking it back.

Delightful to use, but it has one significant drawback:annoying lack of
cut and paste from other programs.

version 1.0, free. I installed beta version 1.5, not free. Uninstall could
not remove beta version 1.5 completely and I even tinkered with the Windows
Registry. Whatever you do, don't install version 1.5 if you're using 1.0

be able to afford FrontPage someday.
