      Below is a web site I quickly set up so all of you can see some really nifty woodworking.  This is NOT period, but this guy is good.  From the location of the water shots, I can tell you he probably is from Venice, Italy, and is also probably the man I think of as "Mr. Cool."  I think he is in two of the shots really well, the first one posing nicely in his wood Porsche, and the other sitting on some of his wooden furniture.  I will leave this web site up for only about two weeks, as I really don't have direct permission to publish these pictures.  I've explained where I got them on the web site, though, so I hope that is sufficient.

          I'm not sure what you mean about changing the references to be relative??  I use Netscape Composer to build my web pages and that is the only way I know of to put images into the page.  You are the first person I've had tell me of this problem <grin>... I'm not saying no one else is having the same issues you are, but no one has told me my regular web site (done this same way) had problems??  I made the text large so everyone could actually read it (it still looked small to me, but couldn't make it larger that I did), I could make it smaller, I suppose.

                AS it was when I checked it earlier this week. You would be the only
                person who could see the pictures.
                The image tags in the HTML pointed to files located in specific
                directories on your hard drive, which most of us don't have access to.

                If your pictures are in the same directory as the webpage they are part
                of, then the html could look like.

                <img src="mypic.jpg">

                Or if they were in a directory called pics inside the current directory
                then:

                <img src="pics/mypic.jpg">

                I've never used Composer, but there should be a way for you to refer to
                the files relative to where the webpage is being saved to, rather than a
                specific folder on your hard disk.

                  An updated (ie. "website-relative") page is up at
                  http://helen.schultz.home.comcast.net/Wood_Creations.html and should
                  come up hunky-dory.

                  This on the heels of trying to fit a table into the back of the truck
                  (it's supposed to ride cross-ways across the bed-rails - worry not,
                  truck has a camper shell!) and discovering that I need to shave about 1
                  1/2" off.

                  I suggested popping the shell, working the table-top in, and then
                  remounting the shell, but my Lady didn't find that very humourous. :-/

                    [Chuck Phillips] This sounds a bit like what I used to do to transport my motercycle.   Get a couple of friends, pop the shell off, remove the fairing and mirrors, wrestle the bike up the ramp, tie it down, and lift the shell over the whole mess.  Good thing I only had to do that a few times.
