      Hello, I'm a newcomer, a Newbie as they say,

      I'm unable to see a .jpg file when I convert a .otl file to a .html.

      Example: I have a .otl file.


      Here is a line taken directly from my .otl file
      <img src=
      "file:///C:/documents%20andsettings/all%20users/desktop/awebsites/main/main_
      files/bridge.jpg" align = "left" width="156" height="200" border="0"
      alt="Golden Gate Bridge">

      When working in .otl mode, if I click on the above image link, I see the
      Golden Gate Bridge image just as I would expect to.

      But when I click on Modify>Document to Html ... and then try to view the
      .html in my IE browser, I don't see the Golden Gate Bridge.

      Can anyone help me out?

      Thanks,

      Jim, ... You probably just need to do a saveas and save the file as a .HTML file then do an F8. Regards, Jim

        You probably just need to do a saveas and save the file as a .HTML file
        then do an F8.

          When you do the "Document to html" try the "No character conversion"
          option. That should do the trick. With character conversion on "<" and ">"
          get converted to their corresponding HTML entities (< and >). Of
          course, you also wait with inserting the HTML image tags until after you
          have converted the Outline to HTML.

          Hope it works now!

              Jim, I tried to saveas, followed by an F8, with no success.

                Hi Jim, Jim, & Lotta,

                The file only needs to be renamed to the HTML type extension, but
                does not have to be saved in order to view it in a browser. I
                will agree that I find it easier to save first though if I will
                be doing a lot of work on it or know that it will eventually be a
                "permanent" document.

                Sometime you do want to display the actual tag in the browser for
                like a tutorial or to show an eMail address with the arrows. In
                those cases you do want the characters converted so that the tag
                or <eMail@...> will be displayed (having it active with the
                mailto:).


                Happy HTML'n!
