Then I opened my file, deleted a letter in the body and retyped the letter so it would allow me to save the file and then I uploaded that file.
My understanding (based entirely on trial and error) is that when I save a file that uses my template, the template piece of the file is saved.
Changes to stuff inside an editable region will be applied to new pages created from the template only.
So, your steps are: 1) Move the menu code back to the uneditable region in the template 2) Do a Find and Replace to remove the code from the editable region in all child pages completely in your entire site 3) Update all child pages so the menu code gets replaced in the uneditable region.
I want to document which files are associated with each of my templates and I would be thrilled to find a simple way of doing that.

You can certainly move the code back on the dwt file to an uneditable region, but all child pages will not retroactively edit code or text in the editable region.
This is because DW assumes that anything in an editable region is your content and thus not to be overwritten by changes to the template.My site uses a template which holds a banner image at the top and a Table Of Contents down the left side of every page.I updated the template file “mmuuf generic template.dwt” (and uploaded that file to the server — even though after reading your article I now realize I didn’t need to).Using a template makes the job of adding new pages to much easier than it would otherwise have been: any time I want to add a new article, all I need to do is to use that custom template and insert my article content into the right column.Not only does Dreamweaver allow you to create such a customised ("customized" in other variants of English) template for your website, its template system also includes additional features meant to make a webmaster's typical tasks more productive.Content in Editable Regions is unique for each page and not tied to the template.
