in some text, then saved and closed it. I then went to windows explorer
and deleted the file - something I didn't expect it to do, since the file
was still being held with NTP. Going back to NTP and trying to reopen that
file proved impossible since it had been deleted. Okay. I think we need
to go back and look at the original post to see what the problem was. I've
gotten myself confused because of the weird way things are working now.
This is all under XP Pro with NTP 4.95.
