Can't See Contents of Page in Edit Mode - Macromedia Contribute General Discussion

:confused; My web site uses multiple stylesheets, javascript and ssi. Some of my pages come up fine and display in edit mode correctly but some pages show no content at all. I'm using a demo version of Contribute 3.1. I will not purchase this product if I cannot view all of my pages on the site. I've read a lot of other similar complaints and have tried some of the work-arounds mentioned. None have helped. I need help! Thanks. Pam...

    Sorry the pages are behind a firewall and I would not be allowed to give you
    access. I'm going to try looking at the code from within Dreamweaver to see if
    it's a simple html error of some kind unless there are other obvious things I
    could try.

    some things to look for-

    is there a js menu system?
    if yes- does the script use <body> tags in it?

    is there SSI?
    if yes, are the included files complete html docs, or just the html that is
    correct syntax for where they are used in the main files? (multiple <body>
    tags in the assembled doc will cause an edit failure in contribute, and no
    design view in dreamweaver)

    :D
    Thank you for letting me rant a little in this forum. The problem turned out
    to be hanging code, the following tags (</td></tr>) had no opening <td> or
    <tr>. Once I removed them the text showed up fine. Dreamweaver didn't even
    pick up the error. Wow that's a relief because I have to brief this product
    next week and I really liked it as a easy to administer solution but if I was
    going to end up with problems then I couldn't have given an endorsement of the
    product.

    Thanks again.
