      This needs to be closed with "</A>" preceded with the text that will be
      visable to the user.
      Probably the blank in the email address.

      Start with "img src="../" NOT just one "dot".


      Hope this works for you


      Blanks (in the src) again. Might have to be changed to "%20" or
      something. I always use the old DOS 8.3 naming convention (and all lower
      case) to avoid this stuff, myself.

          Hi Ray,

          Many of the points have already been covered, but here are a few more:

          Title==Should be informative and snappy. It is the name under which a
          user saves your web page. Make it informative when the user sees it in
          his/her folder. Your page appears to be a template for other pages.

          Meta (description and keywords)== Either fill these in or leave out
          altogether. Search engine robots use these to find out what your web
          site is about, so they have their uses.

          Body tag== These attributes are better put into a cascading style sheet.
          See www.normist.co.uk for a web authoring course.

          img== the url of your logo is wrong. If you mean to up one folder level.
          use '../' Note the two dots. I agree with what has been said about
          spaces. If you must make it look as though there are spaces, use the
          underscore character like_this.

          Paragraph head== is not part of a paragraph. Use <h2></h2> to <h6><?h6>

          br and hr tags== should be <br /> and <hr /> . They are a self-closing
          tags, called empty tags, as is the img tag!

          small tag== I must admit that I thought this was deprecated, but it is
          quite correct.

          Hope these thoughts help.

          Regards

          Michael Rawley.

                Ray: One more ... being pretty much a novice at HTML myself.

                In standard library HTML I used Image wizard
                The html file I was working with was: D:\Temp\NoName01.html (a copy of
                the first source you posted)
                I pasted file name in the wizard as: D:\Temp\picswork\Flat\Billie Piper
                01.jpg leaving remainder of fields blank.
                and it generated: <img src="picswork/flat/billie%20piper%2001.jpg"
                width="340" height="450" border="0">
                which works :-)

                Note that it figured out that folder picswork is in the same folder as
                the HTML file (I would have guessed that either ./ or ../ was needed but
                apparently not?) and translated spaces in file name to %20 as required.

                Eric and Jody do/did good work :-)
                It appears the "heavy lifting" for the filename changes is being done
                by: ^!InsertWizardHtml though its documentation doesn't say anything
                about this translation.

                Cary guessed the image-file problem which I might never have got!

                  To All,

                  Alec said, "Cary guessed the image-file problem which I might never have
                  got!". That's exactly correct. Cary also correctly supplied the solution to my
                  problem by alerting me to the "Save for Web & Devices" function in Photoshop.

                  All the comments about blanks spaces in file name or length of file name or
                  the tags in the code snippet are well-intentioned, but they miss the point.
                  That small web page is what NoteTab itself generates when one uses the HTML
                  template in the HTML clip library supplied with NT Pro (I'm using version
                  5.7b).

                  Thanks to all who responded.

                  Ray Shapp
