when adding code to an HTML-source some code disappears when I switch to (wysiwyg) weblayout and back to HTML-source.

example: <style>
a:link {color:green; background-color:transparent; text-decoration:none}
a:visited {color:pink; background-color:transparent; text-decoration:none}
a:hover {color:red; background-color:transparent; text-decoration:underline}
a:active {color:yellow; background-color:transparent; text-decoration:underline}

of this style-block the link and visited lines would remain, hover and active disappear.

I made the same experience with adding

img src="exmpl.jpg"

which is just deleted. Libreoffice forces me to embed the image file in the html, what is not that great.

Does anybody know a way to avoid this loss of code? LibreOffice Writer would be a real nice wysiwyg editor, if this problem could be somehow switched off or worked around. Juergen
