Call me an old curmudgeon, but I still don't buy the idea that expanded
macros are of use to anybody.  For example, designers using GoLive can't
know if they're editing a piece of macro code or a piece of inline code,
so they will frequently make changes and then get upset when the changes
don't get saved.

More likely, I'm missing some kind of fundamental point here...?
