      Hi Terry,

      I tried to cover everything you wrote about. ;) I understand the
      problem now.

      Maybe not. You also mentioned that it was obviously NoteTab's
      problem. That is also a maybe (or most likely if you will; I do
      understand that another programmer was able to fix the same
      problem which might not have been a bug in his software). The
      reason I say that is many of us get fooled for a long time
      thinking something is a NoteTab problem because it appears that
      it is only happening with NoteTab. We've had a few problems like
      that over the past that turned out to be Windows or Delphi
      problems. Sometimes Eric can work around them, but not all the

      >Windows 2000 SP2 - IE 5.5 SP1

      I'd be curious to know if anybody else is having the problem with
      the same system. (Make sure you do not have or did not have the
      file open in IE during that session.)

      Happy NoteTab'n,
