Bugs fixed in Dreamweaver MX 6.1

In addition to the specific bugs outlined below, several stability issues in the shipping version of Dreamweaver MX have been addressed in this release.

There are intermittent occurrences of files being truncated or losing data when using Get/Put. (76640)
This occurs under certain circumstances if the "Refresh local file list automatically" is unchecked and the Site window has not been refreshed before putting a big file.

Updating pages via a template wipes out the body's onload event handler. (78200)

Relative-positioned Div/Span tags in a template cause Dreamweaver to think a change has been made in locked region when it hasn't. (77949)

Changes to a locked region are discarded. (78297)
After making an edit in a locked region from code view, saving the document brings up a dialog that allows the user to save the document, but the changes are discarded.

Getting files from a WebDAV site that is configured incorrectly deletes local files. (71441)
If the site configuration for a WebDAV server does not include the ":81", doing a get from that site deletes local files.

File is deleted when attempting to check it out when it has already been checked out. (74371)
If a file is already checked out by another user in a site that is using Visual SourceSafe, and you attempt to check it out, the file is deleted from the local folder.

Include directives get deleted when LiveData is invoked. (72592)
Include directives with the word "Include" capitalized are deleted when LiveData is invoked.

Under some circumstances when Dreamweaver crashes, site definitions are lost. (76615)

Dreamweaver fails to check out files before updating locked template pages. (77317)
Changes made in the template are reflected in the page, but Dreamweaver is not able to get a remote copy before performing the update.

The Space character and its preceding character are deleted if the Backspace key is used on a line of text containing a form item. (72789)

Making a template region around an image (with swap image or nav bar behavior) removes the behavior. (64228)

Dreamweaver disregards changes to quotes around attributes in code view. (79337)

Data corruption occurs when doing a find/replace of source text across a site with UTF-8 documents opened. (72612)

Importing a JSP Tag library will overwrite the tag name for some tag libraries. (78038)

The Quick Tag Editor wrap function puts span (and other) tags between table cells when wrapping around the selection in a table cell. (75994)

Double quotes and ampersands get corrupted in UTF-8 docs. (76647)

Using tag or attribute names as filenames confuses link rewriter. (77200)
The tags or attribute names are rewritten as though they were files.

Edit Tag incorrectly rewrites code in an XHTML page. (77349)
When using edit tag on <input type=submit>, Dreamweaver attempts to rewrite a tag for XHTML compliance, and incorrectly writes it as:
<input name="" type="submit" />form>

Dreamweaver wipes out hand-coded white space when adding an additional list item. (43061)

PHP script link is corrupted when changing the name of the linked file. (78663)

The code editor cannot always distinguish between "&" and "& amp". (77367)

Using an include (for example, cfinclude) inside of <script> causes problems with MM:Lock. (75469)

Dragging a file into design view in OSX results in code reorganization. (66369)
The code from the file gets inserted into the open document at the insertion point, but Dreamweaver also attempts to merge the two documents together. So even though both documents have their own html, body, and head tags, the combined document has only one html, body, and head tag.

Dreamweaver creates corrupted code if pasted into BBEdit and viewed with invisibles on. (78081)

UTF-8 XML contents get corrupted when using a double-byte tag name. (77396)
This problem does not occur in Shift_JIS encoding XML or in UTF-8 with English tag names.

Hand-written CFML is corrupted in certain cases. (76811)
This causes the mmTranslatedValue attribute to show up in the code.
