OK. Just as an observation, you'll find that most of the contributors
here recommend that you stay away from 'Fixed' layouts; it can cause
problems for some browsers. Dynamic (or Semantic XHTML in NOF 11) is
generally preferred.

Whenever you're in design view, you'll find that NOF allows you view
(and to a greater or lesser degree, change) the HTML code for an object
- text box, layout region, border, whatever. On the properties panel
when you have an object selected, you'll usually see an 'HTML' button -
click this to open up an editor box.

Exactly what you see depends upon the object. However, in general if you
see anything in the lower panel, that's custom code.

Another way of adding code to a page is to use the 'Insert HTML' option.
This probably gets used mainly in text boxes - it's a handy way of
embedding scripts in a page. When this is done, you'll see a small icon
in the box (a T against a circular purplish background). To view the
code, place the cursor next to the icon and hit Ctrl-T to open the
editor dialogue.

Yup, it's a nice product. Has its quirks & limits, but then so do most
products. These newsgroups are really helpful - and generally very
tolerant! - that goes a long way as well.

Hope the above helps a little...
