I tested your file. I only had the problem when the elements following the comment were preceded by a line break. I don't mean a <BR>-element, but an actual line break in the textfile. When the "jumpy" elements (or rather: the first of them) followed the comment on the same line, they didn't jump. Instead Amaya inserted an actual line break. Is a comment in HTML invalid if anything else follows it on the same line? I don't see anything about that in the specification.

> After a new release of Amaya there are situations that

> fix-it-up and rerelease are:
> 1] bugs that crash the system
> 2] bugs that hang the system
> 3] bugs that destroy files or authors documents
> 4] bugs that take a file that validated and makes it into
>    a file that no longer validates!!!
> Currently there exists a type four problem. When comments occur
> prior to other elements in the head element of a validated file,
>  loading the file into Amaya and saving as foobar creates an invalid file.
> meta and link statements can get moved into the body element.
> My example (rrdiesel.htm) is included as a test document.
> This type of action validates the statement that says Amaya 
> produces valid html....  Can a fix be applied!  And if so can a
> new binary release be issued so that the 'produces valid html'
>  is legit!!!
