Default Text disappears when grouping

LS.

Im working for a big company which asked me to make a new bulletin, so after series of tests I found out that making a webpage in publisher 2003 was the easiest ways to reach the targets.
I am stuck now with the following problems:
I made the layout in a table which was not steady when publishing, so now Im switching everything to text boxes. But when I link these text boxes together, to prevent them from moving around the screen when uploading, the text disappears when publishing.
So Im looking for
- easy edible text areas
- steady layout

Does Anyone (anyone at all) have any ideas how to solve these issues? I already tried everything.

Thank you so much in advance!

Default Text disappears when grouping

The short answer is to ungroup the text boxes and every other element on the
page before you publish. Here is my boilerplate answer to the 'grouping'
issue for IE8 and Pub 2003 and 2007. In the future please post web design
question to the web group:
news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsof...sher.webdesign
or
http://www.microsoft.com/office/comm...&lang=en&cr=US

--------------

There is a compatibility issue with IE8 and Publisher 2003 and 2007. Any
design elements that are 'grouped' together, which includes the Publisher
wizard built navbars, do not render when you view the web page in IE8 . The
fix in general is to ungroup the elements. There is both a manual fix to
these issues and a Service Patch that has been issued to fix it for Pub
2007.

Reference: Navigation bars and other content is missing from Publisher HTML
output in Internet Explorer 8: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/969705

A manual method of fixing this grouping issue:

After making and saving any changes to your Pub file, and prior to uploading
new web files, make a copy of your publication by doing a 'File Save As'
and in this copy go to each page Edit Select All Arrange Ungroup.
This will ungroup the Publisher built navbar and disconnect it from the
wizard, and the navbars will render correctly in IE8. 'Publish to the Web'
from this copy of your publication. When you want to make further changes in
your web, go back to the original Publisher file, make the corrections
there, save your changes, and again make a copy, ungroup the
navbars and produce new web files for uploading. The advantage of this
workflow is that you will not have to rebuild the navbar if you choose to
add a page to the navbar. If you do not need to add a page or section to
your site, you can leave the navbar ungrouped and skip the step of saving a
copy.

Publisher 2007 can be fixed manually or with the Office 2007 SP2:

Reference: Description of 2007 Microsoft Office Suite Service Pack 2 (SP2)
and of Microsoft Office Language Pack 2007 SP2:
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=953195

Some users have found SP2 breaks Publisher, and makes it impossible to open
existing Pub files...you know, break one thing to fix another, so there is a
hotfix for that:
