you should get a confirmation message. I then moderate (mostly
done by Julie G. for me now-a-days which I am very grateful for) first
time posters as SPAM prevention so it may take awhile for messages to
get posted the first time or two.

that. I know they have the screen reading software. It has been
discussed; the software that is. The "mailto:" is actually an
HTML command / tag or should I say used in HTML and eMail. Not
all eMail programs recognize it I imagine. Anyway, when the
"mailto:" is followed with an eMail address (no spaces) it is hot
(can be clicked on) and will open a new message to the eMail
address specified. Here is another one for you to try:
mailto:Merry-Heart@... Double click on that and
see if it opens a new message. It works the same way as it does
in a browser, the only difference is in a browser it opens the
default mail program or if already open just opens the new
>In short, does case matter in HTML for the mailto, ETC?Yes in some cases. I notice NoteTab must have the "mailto:" section in
lowercase or at least it use to be like that when using it in a Clip.
The eMail address itself is not case dependent/sensitive.
>What is the best code, if any, to include for general all-aroundMost, or a lot of people are going with "xhtml" now because that
supposedly will be the standard in the future. Personally, I
would not hold my breath about it, but that is neither here nor
there. I think lowercase is the safest bet for now. NoteTab can
convert to xml and/or xhtml if you want to in the future. Look
in Options under the HTML Files tab and at the bottom there are
some boxes to check to make the code you use (when using
NoteTab's Libraries and HTML features the format you want. FWIW, I
have "Highlight HTML" tags (NoteTab Pro) and "Create Lowercase
URLs" checked. Leaving "Create Uppercase Tags" unchecked makes it
so the tags are in Lowercase.
You want to use an HTML validator such as CSE Validator or use the
free service online at: http://www.w3.org

>the term "BYTE"?
Werner Buchholz, a brilliant geek, who invented Fidonet (named
after his dog) also coined the term "byte." It actually came
from "bite" extended from "bit." Now, so it is told, that Fido
"bit" a man one day and when Werner got home he asked Fido, "Did
you actually bite a man today?" Of course Fido claimed innocence.
Anyway, that night Buchholz was geek'n away on inventing what is
now known as the "byte" and wondering what to call it. So, once
again, with Fido in mind, he named the 8 bit word (or 2 nibbles,
or 4 crumbs if you wish), a "byte" offsetting it from "bite." To
this very day we still do not know if Fido took a nibble or a
bite out of the man, or even met the man at all.
Now, for $25,000.00 is that true or false (remember the game show?) :)

best to just burn a CD if you have the hardware. You can always
buy a CD from me for $10.00. Here's the blah, blah, blah from
NoteTab's PasteBack feature. (I can do PayPal or snail mail
orders if it is just for the CD. Otherwise, see my affiliate
The CD-ROMs for our products that have lots of extras on them
including: very useful freeware and shareware, extra HTML help for
beginners, an excellent Clip writing tutorial, and other short
tutorials... You can get more than one registered program on the
same CD at no extra charge, even if you already registered the
products; see "cd-info.htm" and "onthiscd.htm" below for details
and the contents of the CDs. (http://www.fookes.us)
The NoteTabbers Assistant Page (http://www.notetab.net) is one of
my personal web sites loaded with free useful Libraries and Clips.
It is well worth the visit in my opinion!-)
