Janet (and Ray, BTW),
I think our moderatrix is
I fight with Yahoo's text
formatting foibles all the
time when posting online.
One thing I have found to
be useful when posting a
URL on CRL (or other YH!
Groups) is to imput my text
far enough down the page
so that it clears the annoy-
ing advert that sits to the
right, spinning and flashing
One way to be certain that I
am far enough down to clear
the ad is to place a single period
(there's that WORD again!) at
the very top of my text message
and space down six or eight ver-
tical spaces before starting my
message. (See above...)
Then when you enter a URL there is
less likelihood of it being obscured by
the bothersome ad graphic and also
less likely to break onto two lines which
makes it cumbersome to cut and paste
into the address box. It also helps to put
the URL in questionon a separate line...
...by itself, like this
Also, there are times when I cannot seem
to get my computer to highlight a URL in
a YH! message. In that case I have found
that if I hit the reply button I can highlight
it in the message window that opens up,
thus saving me from having to painstakingly
type the whole thing without any mistakes!
Afterwards, I just delete the reply window.
(Often, a URL that was obscured by the
ad graphic will become visible in the
reply window as the ad graphic does not
come along into the new window.)
I could show an example, but that would be
P-B-ing and we do not need it -nor any
sarcasm, for that matter. (Not that I would
ever do sich a thang.)
!Puros 'Puercos de Atras'!
[who is hoping that there is enough
helpfullness in this email to hurdle
his horrible humor inherent in it]
