As a fan of Amaya, I found my way ot use it trough the company-provided 
frontpage, I added it as alternate editor for html pages. I can 
right-click html-pages and select amaya which opens amaya with the page 
and off I go: add section numbering, generate a table of contents, 
change to proper formatting of code and many more tiny things.

Then some other bloke started to use asp and hence I now have to edit 
asp pages. I also added amaya as alternate *.asp editor but no luck, 
amaya does not accept asp pages at all. I solve this now by altering the 
extention between asp and html.

After editing asp pages with amaya and restoring the asp extention, the 
server gets in trouble. Some investigation teaches me that Amaya has 
altered the asp code. From a HTML point of view, this asp code is 
comment, hence amaya should leave it as it is. Unfortunatly, amaya 
reformats this 'comment' and hence the asp code gets mingled.

My questions:

Can amaya be updated to accept strange extentions as being html, xml or 

Can amaya be altered not to change the formatting of comment? Either not 
at all or in combination with the previons update?

Thanks for the great tool.
