page by itself would be adiquate. I suggested that we still keep our
documents in the more usefull text format and with one clip I could:
A: upload a copy to the network drive
B: upload a copy to a mainframe pds
C: convert all the text files to html.
D: convert the notetab hyperlinks to html hyperlinks
E: ftp to the web site.
Best of ALL worlds.
The document (Asking for a Site Liscense) has been submitted to "The
Powers That Be", I think it was a very persuasive one. We just have
to wait and see what they say.
