Thanks for your responses.

primary function of checking for broken links.
However, I was looking for a package that allowed my to see, at a glance,
where the "star" pages were on my site. Maybe I haven't looked at it
properly with this task in mind but, from memory, the trouble with Xenu for
this purpose is that it produces long, text based, lists of links, for each
page that need some studying to work out where they all point to.
The kind of package I am looking for will allow you to focus on an icon
representing one page and around it will draw icons for each page that it is
linked to. Each of these icons/pages then in turn have lines representing
links to radiate from them ad infinitem. Click on a different icon and the
screen redraws with the newly selected icon as the focus of the display.

copy of AOLPress I used to have. At least it was freeware!
As a BTW, UK based readers might like to know that PC PLUS magazine now
includes Xenu as one of its "Library files" appearing on every issue's cover
It is also becoming clear that Helen Bradley, one of the magazine's regular
contributors is a regular user of NoteTab Light. Her recent articles have
been peppered with NOTETAB screen dumps. However, NOTETAB still doesn't
feature among the Library Files on the disk. I might just write to
mailto:hbradley@... or Chris Wiles
(mailto:chris.wiles@...) who organises the disks, to find out
why! Anyone else, going to join in the campaign? :-)
- Hi Brendan and Greg,
(We should bring this to the OT list, Clips, or private eMail. TIA)

TreePad" that converts NoteTab's Outlines to TreePad format. Each
beading in NoteTab's Outline is converted to make a heading
(node?). So, I suppose it would give you a head start. I would
add ^!SetScreenUpdate Off and before and outside the loops add
^!SetHintInfo [Whatever] w/o the brackets. Look on my Library
page to download the Outline Libraries.
I image that a Clip could be made that when it is clicked on it
would get the focused heading in the Outline and add it under a
main node making the multiple levels. I don't have one built, to
see what code you add to do the subdirectories, so I can help
make the Clip. If some body wants to send me the formatting of
the file such as the code TreePad looks for, I can build the Clip.
This is the ending of a node which would be something like </a>
in HTML and the start of another follows it: <node>.
<end node> 5P9i0s8y19Z
The extension of a TreePad file is .hjt
