Visual Studio 2003 Designer Removes code


I'm using Visual Studio 2003 to build ASP.NET applications. When I use the designer, I can create an app real fast but my HTML-code is often a little messy.
For instance, if I create a list <li></li>, the designer removes my closing </li> tag. Does anybody know how to tell VS2003 to use a correct schema for the syntax?

Yeah. Don't use the designer. Seriously.

I second that.  However, if you want to check your layout, save your file before switching to desinger, change nothing, then switch back.
