CS3 cleanup commands and webassist

Hello group,

I use Dreamweaver CS3, on a PC.
Site built with siteassist and menu writer.

Normally I use Dreamweaver command 'cleanup word HTML' and cleanup XHTML
to make my site function better and remove unused tags on sites I have built.

However when I now do this with webassist built site my menu 'desintegrates'
and I wonder what other damage it does to the templates?

Please kindly advise if I can clean up my site in the traditional method.
It surely will still be necessary as my code is likely to be less than perfect.
I would hope for a simple way to resolve this.

I could not find any warnings about this on Webassist site.

Thank you for your assistance.
With regards
Alan

Is the site that you used this on an html site or a dynamic site like PHP? I can see some potential issues in a dynamic site since tags may appear on the page that are only used under certain conditions based on the server side code.

If this is a static site please post back with some more details about what specifically was in the site and if you did any modification to any of the code produced by the WA tools. I will use this info to look into this issue further to help determine what may be going on and if there is a way around it.

Eric,

Thank you for your assistance.
I use a static html site, build in CS3 with webassist templates.
Nothing that complicated.

Last time I applied the cleanup, it wiped out my menu, leaving it as text.

Can I apply these cleanup commands to templates produced pages?

With regards
Alan

I just ran a test on a template I had, The Clean Up XHTML command did not have an adverse affect on how it displayed, but the Clean Up Word HTML command did.

The report said: "removed 3 word Ifs.."

What it actually removed where 3 conditional css rules:
1:

<!--[if IE 5]>
<style type="text/css">
#outerWrapper #contentWrapper #leftColumn1 {
width: 175px;
}
</style>
<![endif]-->


2:

<!--[if IE]>
<style type="text/css">
#outerWrapper #contentWrapper, #outerWrapper #contentWrapper #content {
zoom: 1;
}
</style>
<![endif]-->



3:

<!--[if lte IE 6]>
<style type="text/css" media="all">
@import url("../CSSMenuWriter/cssmw_content/menu_ie.css");
</style>
<![endif]-->




these conditional css rules are used to fix bugs in the way IE renders CSS. When I tested the page in the browser, it displayed fine in FireFox and in IE7, IE6 however, the menu did not function because the CSS Style sheet needed to display the menu in IE was not attached, that was the third conditional CSS block that was removed.


The Clean up Word HTML Command is mistakenly detecting the conditional css rules as word specific markup. You should not have a problem with the Clean Up XHTML Command, but I would avoid the Clean Up Word HTML command.
