MSFP 2000 hangs/terminates when I attempt to save a revised .css file

Is there a known problem with .CSS files and MSFP? Running WinXPPro

I'm working on a live website (running on server, making changes and saving to server) and [i]every time I go to save a .css file (there's 3 for this site) MSFP hangs and then the dreaded pop-up about sending an error message appears before my eyes. Drat!

If I change my .css files to .txt files and make the changes to the stylesheet - no problem - I can make the changes and save them no problem, an they work.

Buuutttttt, MSFP actually has a drop down menu, when saving files, that allows one to save a file as a .css file. HOWEVER, after I initially save the file - which goes okay - IF I wish to make any changes I get the error message.

Any clues how to "fix" this? Is there a known problem? Anyone know what may be triggering this problem? Anyone experience the same problem?

Thanks.

FP2K is a bit dated. You're 2 generations back. CSS support in that version is pretty primitive.

I'm assuming this is the server with the FP extensions on it. You can use a 3rd party FTP program to upload static files like CSS. This won't corrupt the extensions or mess up the web settings. This is one of the few exceptions where you can do this without fear.
