B'coz i gave 55 MB file to validate and it took <1 minute to validate and when i try to open this file in either frontpage 2002 or my dhtml editor, it just fail to open and giving alert "Error reading file". The same validated file is opening in NOTEPAD.

Are you sure it's 56MB?  56KB seems more reasonable.  Last I heard, 
Notepad had a 64KB limit, and that's why Word-Pad exists.  I can't 
imagine what kind of web connection you'd need to deal with a file that 
big.  Hell, I've seen half hour video clips smaller than that...

You don't mention error messages...  I've never used frontpage, which I 
assume is what you're using to generate the original file, but I've 
never seen a Microsoft product that didn't generate reams and reams of 
warnings from Tidy.

Does the original load in a web-browser?  Does the new version?
