I think if we fix those features, add a few more, and give it to you in context people will learn to love it. Don't give up on iRite too quick, it's going to make a comeback in the next year and it just might change your mind.
I agree with Ian. I spent my money on iRite as well, and don't use it anymore. It's a very bad product. Someone recommended Advanced HTML Editor 2 by DMXZone to me awhile ago. I tried it and have been using it ever since. Far superior to iRite.
I hope when you guys release this next version of iRite, you will offer it as a free upgrade to those of us who wasted our money on version 1.
