Got my attention. I completely agree: editing in Book View isn't a good idea--in my experience you get a bunch of unnecessary formatting, spans, you name it. So I realize that the task of maintaining that particular feature seems to be an exercise in futility.

But there are times when I find the Book View very helpful. My most frequent use is for taking un-formatted (or even formatted--italics, for example) paragraphs of text with a double-space separating them and pasting then into the Book View; it happily creates those same paragraphs each within its own <p></p> container. Of course, you just have to take for granted that you're going to then have to go into the Code View and clean up all the weird-ities. But you should plan to do that in any case.

But, if it has to go, it has to go; I'm pretty sure I saw mention somewhere of an add-on that accomplishes the same thing. I'd bite the bullet and go that extra step just to relieve the pressure on you guys, who are supporting this program for...well, let's just say "no financial remuneration."
