Angry WYSIWYG IE auto-formatting problems

I've messed around with WYSIWYG editors before but all seem to have this same quirk. When I'm editing the HTML (meaning actually typing and coding in HTML) and switching back and forth between modes IE automatically changes the HTML code.

For example if I created a simple HTML table like:

<table>
<tr>
<td>Simple Table</td>
</tr>
</table>

When switching back to WYSIWYG mode and back to HTML editing mode IE auto adds a <TBODY></TBODY>.

Also, what is with the enter key creating a new paragraph, while holding shift and hitting enter creates a line break? Shouldn't it be just the opposite?

These are just a few examples of IE inserting what I would consider strange or useless HTML. The more complex HTML I use the stranger stuff IE automatically inserts in there. It does this while simply copying and pasting HTML as well.

Is there anyway to fine tune it to stop IE from auto-"correcting" the HTML?

hey,

I wonder if there might be a way to scan the innerHTML (the raw code) in the WYSIWYG editor so that you can strip the <TBODY> etc code out of it? Maybe do a search and replace? I dont know.... might be possible?!!

If you use dreamweaver, that has the same properties for entering a <P> as the Microsoft WYSIWYG component.... ie: press the return key and it enters a <P> and press SHIFT+enter it enters a <BR>. I think u can do a key capture which can tell the editor that on ENTER press, write a <BR> to the code..... not sure about the code though!!

I do agree though, some of the code it enters is very strange!! I guess it's just microsofts way of doing things!
