Start and End Fragment references

I've been using Sigil for at least 2 years on many books, from correcting minor annoyances on retail books, to the final finishing of a few scanned books I've done, and I've never once seen this added to any code by Sigil.

Right now I'm putting together a few pages of schedules in an epub that I'm pretty much doing manually. I'm doing a lot of editing in the Book View (which I've done a lot in the past as well without this problem).

But I keep getting these references to "fragments" in the code view and I have no idea why. There doesn't seem to be any one thing that consistently causes it to happen, at least I can't find a common cause. It will sometimes be listed as:

<!--StartFragment--><!--EndFragment-->

And sometimes it will have some, even a lot of, text between the Start and End statements.

I'm using Sigil 0.7.2, and as I said, I've never seen this happen before this epub. What did I mess up?

Hi Ripplinger;

That is originated because you copied some .html text (from your web browser for example) and have pasted it in Sigil. The <!--StartFragment--><!--EndFragment--> appears to indicate that (the copy and paste procedure with the formated text) and are the way to include comments in the .html code. See this page:

http://www.htmlhelp.com/reference/wi...c/comment.html

Of course, the code between <!--StartFragment--><!--EndFragment--> is valid. The only thing not visible is what you write inside

Code:
<!-- ...comments here... -->
Regards
Rubén

I thought it might be from cut and paste that way, but it's been happening on the same pages even when typing in new text and not using cut and paste.

Thanks, I'll try copying it first to a plain text editor, and then copy from there and see if that eliminates it.

I don't think that's the cause at all. I switch often between Book and Code view, where it would pop up the message if there were any errors at all when I switched to Book view. It's a pretty simple epub, only 4 pages so far (but it did it from page 1), and using only h2, h3 and p class=calibre1 and that's it. Not really too much that can get screwed up and nothing complicated like tables.
