    How do you configure the external editor for Contribute? Can MS Notepad be used as the external editor?

    Editing web page source in an external application

    You can edit web page source in an external application to make quick
    modifications or to do testing, such as link checking or accessibility testing.
    Contribute opens the source in an external editing application.

    Note: If your Contribute administrator has not enabled source editing, you
    will not be able to edit the source in an external application. For
    information, talk to your Contribute administrator or see Setting page-editing
    and paragraph settings.

    Caution: Editing web page source in an external application is very different
    than the editing experience in Contribute. If you are unsure about editing the
    source directly, talk to your Contribute administrator.

    To edit a web page's source in an external application:

    In the Contribute browser or editor, view the page you want to edit the source
    for.
    Select File > Actions > Edit Page Source in External Application.
    Contribute displays the External Application Editing page and starts an
    external editing application.

    Note: To change your default editor associated with Web Page Source, see
    Setting file editor preferences.

    In the external application, make changes as necessary, and then save your
    changes and close the file or application.
    Warning: Be careful when you edit web page source--you can easily alter style
    and formatting and get unexpected results. If you are unsure about editing the
    source directly, talk to your Contribute administrator.

    In Contribute, do one of the following:
    Click the Edit in Contribute link on the External Application Editing page to
    reload the draft in Contribute.
    This option enables you to see your changes and resume editing.

    Note: If Contribute warns you that you must save and close the file in the
    external application, click OK.

    Click the Launch link on the External Application Editing page to reopen the
    content in the external editor.
    This option enables you to make additional changes, and provides a convenient
    way to switch back and forth between Contribute and the external editing
    application.

    Click the Publish button in the toolbar to publish your changes to the website.
    Click the Send for Review button to send the draft to another user to review
    your changes.
    Click Cancel if you are unhappy with the results of editing in an external
    application.
    This options discards all changes you've made in Contribute or in the external
    application since you started editing this draft.
