Thanks for your comments.
The text is plain text. The tageditor seems to have a real problem with lists. Every one of my pages has lists on it and it simply will not show the text as intended. It simply cuts the page off at a certain, fairly random point. I have not been able to work out what the html and xml coding is doing that it should not. There are no clues in the code so far.
The TagEditor sticks the headers of the lists within newly created tags and therefore (if I'm lucky) will only show a tag icon in Dreamweaver. I then have to cut and paste it out of the code and plonk it on the page.
I have worked out that if I do a 'save as' most of the page will then appear in Dreamweaver, with only 3-5 sentences shrouded in newly created code.
The tageditor is meant to make my life easier.......
So far it has only caused havoc and has resulted that in utter despair I have downloaded SDLX and are now testing it. I certainly ain't happy.
Wish I had looked at SDLX before I bought this pile of..... The developers must have taken a leaf out of the Microsoft software develpment book. It certainly appears to be as bug ridden as any of Bill's junk.

I know it's a long shot, but one explanation for text to show up when translating html files in TagEditor could be that the text is part of something that is simply not supposed to show immediately on the webpage, e.g. meta tags, ALT text for graphics etc.
Translation of html files is easier if you have a basic understanding of html tags.
As for why some text shows sometimes and sometimes not is beyond me, sorry. But I agree, computers and software can be powerful but also volatile allies
