  When I save a document under Netscape 'Save as', it adds the HTML tags 
too. Even trying to save under a different file extension would not help. 
I thought that would be a good feature to add, specifying a file 
extension of .htm would include the tags and any others would strip off 
the tags. Maybe, the next version of Netscape can include this. In the 
interim, is there any work around within Netscape?
