1 day, after editing my about me (a rather large page already) it went from 80kb to 2.5mb!
i added nothing! removed more actually.
i would really like to fix this as i prefer to use frontpage 2003 over dreamweaver mx (although, since this problem i'm starting to use dreamweaver more)
help would be appreciated.
if u goto my site <snip>
download the page and open it in dreamweaver, it looks hectically buggered
so i'm really confused when i edit it

I have had a look though - There doesn't seem to be that much wrong with the page. I recommend you take your CSS a little further and try to edit the page from the top down - analysing the code so you can cut the fat especially your style tags.
From the symptoms you describe in your first post it would seem there is a problem with the way frontpage is dealing with the file - This could be an internal bug - not sure.
How good is you HTML? as you become more masterful you will be able to make sense of the code and see where you page is bogging down - but as it stands you page does OK on my connection.
Validation is something important to considier too - but I don't think pages built with frontpage do all that well.
I hope this will be of some help. In both frontpage and Microsoft Word if you enable smarttags,each time
you edit the document it will grow on you, both in
text and images as well. It will actually make new
sets of your image files.
Solution, disable smarttags untill you are finished
with edditing and ready to post the page.
I'd bet Kingy's reply had something to do with this. I've never had files exponentially increase in size like this. Any progress on this gdiza?
