      I have asked for this same type of thing before. I would love Aprsisce to generate webpages like UI-View does. Thats why I still am a UI-View user. Because of the Webpages, Info Kiosk, Graphics in real time showing paths on RF, and much more. Lynn, will get me to change over completely sometime. But not untill all these things are achieved. Keep asking and maybe Lynn will do it. :) or not.
