the option to export as txt, html or xml....the <<br /> tag must be the xml
influence. And sometimes I appear dumber than I look :) Thanks for
noting the lack of an open and close for a break... DUH ME... gosh I knew
that... I feel like an idiot (there I go, being human again....geesh I hate
Anyway, as I think I posted, I did hear from the author of the Vault program
which I am exporting this data from (see www.personalmicrocosms.com) and he
said the files are exported in UTF-16??? Well the NoteTab problem of fhe
documents appearing to be write protected was solved earlier today or was it
just before I went to bed last night... there is a setting in Options >
General I believe, to protect unicode files, unchecking this option allowed
me to edit them.
HOWEVER, once it was edited and had what I THOUGHT was the answer, I again
tried in FrontPage to open these files and still go hit with the error
message (and I did follow the frontpage instruction to use International
Language one time and it worked, tonight it did not) but the author told me
of a program he offers as freeware, HTML Editor. This is a WYSIWYG HTML
editor, no frills, just a split screen, code on the left, document on the
right.... kinda cool.... THE KEY is a FILE Menu option to select MBCS
(Multi Byte Character Set) I selected this and saved the file as is, no
editing and Frontpage is happy.
I LOVE NOTE TAB, I use it every single solitary day, it is my ROCK of
Gibraltar...(did I spell Gibraltar right?) but Vault is my other, GOT TO
HAVE program. I don't use very many ALL the time, but NTB and Vault are two
definites for EVERY DAY ALL THE TIME.
Ok, I'll stop the bus here and get off...thanks to everyone who helped to
shed some light on this perplexing dilema I was in....
