      That is good news!

      My guess is you would have to use a Clip using perhaps mailto:
      and send the file as an attachment with your OE5 settings set to
      send HTML attachments in the body of the message. I don't know
      how you set that in OE5 unless it is automatic.

      Perhaps Eric can work a wonder with it.

        Hi David,

        I'm not familiar with NTB v4.83, but I have played around with v4.82
        and Outlook Express 5. I have found two ways to create an HTML
        document that can be sent as an e-mail using OE5.

        First, you can create an HTML document and save it, preferably to the
        root directory (c:\file.htm). Then, from within OE5 select
        Message|New Message Using...|Web Page. You'll have to type in the
        location of the HTML document because OE5 doesn't give you a Browse
        function. Using the example file above as an example, use the format
        file:///c:/file.htm. If you've managed to type everything correctly,
        you will then see your HTML document in all of its glory. To see what
        OE5 has done to your beautifully crafted code, select View|Source
        Edit and then click on the Source tab at the bottom of the page.
        You'll see that OE5 has inserted some Meta tags, whatever it thinks
        is the correct document type and more.

        I prefer this approach:

        Open your HTML document and OE5. From within OE5 click on Message|New
        Message (or Ctrl+N). Once in the new message window, make sure you
        have selected Format|Rich Text (HTML), then click View|Source Edit
        and then click on the Source tab at the bottom of the page. Highlight
        everything OE5 has already put in there and delete it. Then copy and
        paste all of your HTML code from the document you have open in NTB
        into the Source window in OE5. Click on the Preview button and you'll
        see the OE5 rendition of your HTML document. Click on Source again
        and you'll see what OE5 has done to your code. In this case, it won't
        be too bad - just a couple of meta tags. You won't be able to make
        them go away permanently.

        Two notes:

        - You will probably find that OE5 renders your text in using the font
        that you have selected as default within OE5 (not your default
        browser font). If you want another font, you will have to specify it
        in a font tag within your HTML document.

        - If you want to include images in your document, you will probably
        want to upload them to a host and then refer to them with absolute
        rather than relative addresses in your HTML document. In other words,
        use the format: <img
        scr="http://www.yourwebsite.com/images/image1.jpg">

        I'm sure there are e-mail clients that make this simpler, but if
        you're using OE5, in actual practice the second method I outlined is
        pretty quick.

        Good Luck!

          Hi Mike and David,

          I just sent you a Clip to do this to use at your own risk. <g>
          I have to reinstall OE5 in order to test and don't know when I
          can get to that.

          >file:///c:/file.htm.

          Just a regular drive path worked for me such as:

          G:\notetab\html\clipbar.html
