I am also disappointed in the inability to access HTML in the 3rd generation editor. We have a weekly newsletter template set up in the 2nd generation editor that is part HTML and part drag and drop editor. We have a custom-built application on our website that allows us to easily build out the news and event content from our website, copy the HTML code and then paste it into the HTML code box in constant contact thus creating more than 50% of our newsletter while we do the remainder of it manually. What once was a process that was an entire day is now something we can knock out in about 2 hours. However, since constant contact started making all these upgrades we've noticed that the template is running very slow and maybe not holding up to the new system. So I thought I would upgrade to the 3rd generation editor.....except I can't unless I want to go back to building the entire newsletter by hand. This is a pretty big issue for us and I hope you will reconsider allowing the HTML block back!!!
