    Is there any way to prevent invalid HTML inserted by WLW(apart from switching to code mode?)

    Other than that, WLW is pretty much the best out there.

    Yeah that was a problem with earlier release of WLW. Beta 3 seems to have fixed that use and publish proper XTML style markup.

    Check and let me know also 🙂
