Re: [NH] Browsers Lost Their Backgound Colors
- Hi Hugo, Dave, Jeff, Lotta, Others...
Just a short PS to say that I also had to change the Colors tab
in the Internet Options... for background color for when no page
background is given in the html coding. It was set to black on
gray, so I left the default text/font color black (when not
specified in html coding), but changed the background color (that
somehow got changed to gray) to white for when the html author
does not specify a page background. I was not sure to post this
on the OffTopic list, but figured there are many more people on
the NoteTab HTML list than the OffTopic and you guys combined
probably know a whole lot more than those of us on the OffTopic
(for html/browser colors). No offense meant to my OffTopic buds,
because you guys/gals know a whole lot of stuff too!!! ;)

IE and FF but not Mozilla sounds like something is recognizing common
browsers. Do you have Proxymitron or some other thingamajig that filters
- In a moment of frustration I did a clean install of NoteTab Pro v4.95
on my main computer (XP SP2) and it no longer treats view in browser
the same: I prefer to have one browser window open and have each page
I'm checking load into the current open window, rather than opening a
new window for each document - as it now does. Then to top it all
off, it doesn't refresh the page when I make a change and check it
again, but instead I have to do a manual refresh. Any suggestions on
how to solve this?
So ... I put v4.95 on my laptop (also XP SP2) and I get an additional
problem: IE does not recognize .shtml files as web pages but instead
shows me only the source in the browser window. (I intentionally use
IE as my main browser since it's the most commonly used browser.)
Again, any suggestions?

like, but it has a major setback for me causing my Tooltips (hint
popups over mouse pointer) not to work while running any email
download program, even our beloved AsA utility that loaders email
headers and tags spam for deletion at the server level. However,
I believe the problem started after that, and, I guess you missed
it but I found the problem was a setting in the Control Panel |
Accessibility | Display tab | having the High Contrast feature
checked. I don't remember checking it, but may have. Might be
looking for a new freeware antivirus someday, not soon due to

I just bought a Hewlett Packard laptop and discovered there are no system disks in the celophane bag.
Will Microsoft send these to me on request? Or Helwett Packard? If so, where do I write?
I want to be able to do a low level reformat if that ever becomes necessary.
That happened to me once before with an older desktop computer.
