    I have a php file and whenever I save it for some reason notepad mangles it such that it is a blob of text, thus destroying the code. Why does this happen & how to fix it?

    but just now when I disabled wordwrap it doesn't have this problem

    Try notepad++

    it's free and I think it's a great tool.

    you could also do a search on sourceforge for open source html editors. I know there are a few out there that may assist you.

    Uncheck "word wrap" in the Format menu ;)

    You are probably saving the text to a different type of file format or using word wrap.
