Re: [NH] Word Doc on the Web
- Maybe a dumb question, but did you upload the *.doc file in BINARY mode? I
do this all the time with race results for a ski racing site I administer.
(Of course, I also send HTML and PDF versions.) I have never worked with
"track changes," but in IE, the Word documents open right up.

- Hi Don
>>Maybe a dumb question, but did you upload the *.doc file in BINARYmode?<<<<<
Not such a dumb question -- I'm the dummy here because I wasn't aware of
binary mode until you raised the question. After a little searching, I found
binary mode in my FTP client. I just did a test upload, and it works exactly
as desired. Thanks for the relevant advice.
Thanks also to Greg who gave me the link to Clait Help.
