.DWT is driving me Bonkers !! <BODY> parms won't propogate to new

I've been working on this issue for 3 days now and can't for the life of me
figure this out. I'm certain it is some stupid setting that is causing this -
but can't find it.

This is on my LOCAL Machine - XP running FP2003. I create a .DWT and
create/attach a new page to it - the BODY refuses to get propogated to the
new page that I attach the .DWT to.... Please help ... I've include the
snipets from the CODE view... Note that the <Body> includes all items I set
in the .DWT ... however on the attached page, nothing gets passed over to
it. Thank you so much for some wisdom here. This has been very frustrating.

Did you create editable regions in the DWT file, so in the normal pages you
can edit those areas of each page that the dwt is attached to?

Don't know if it answers the question, maybe I don't quite understand what
you're asking....

Yes I did ... However I *finally* figured out what happened. I didn't start
with a .dwt file from scratch. That is, I had a working site that I just
copied and renamed the Index.Htm to Index.dwt .... and added an edit area to
a table I inserted. What I discovered was that there were a couple of
METATAGS that were mising at the beginning of the template. (I compared this
failing one to a brand new one I created from Scratch.) When I simply
copy/pasted the 2 METATAGS to the .dwt code, it suddenly started working just
as expected. Lesson: Build these templates from scratch ... if possible.

Thanks
