back button." This button is the inexperienced user's main help line and
he relies on it the more, the less experienced he is. Without that the
net loses a lot of its basic useability.
I'll heed Lottas advice and make this my last post on that OT subject.
(Should you want to pursue it in [NTO] I'll follow you there.

- Hi Mick and All,
In Intranet zone, the "Default level" button was not grayed out but not
necessarily because of a custom setting. Merely by adjusting the slider to
"Low" causes the "Default level" button to become active. When I pressed
"Default level", the slider reverted to "Medium - Low". Pressing the button
must have reset something else too because the A tag behavior became normal.
I was also able to get rid of the warning message in a caution bar at the top
of the page that says in part, "... Internet Explorer has restricted this
webpage from running scripts or ActiveX controls...". On the Advanced tab, I
added a checkmark to "Allow active content to run in files in My Computer".
I am finally able to navigate the locally mirrored version of my website using
MSIE, then view source in NoteTab, then make edits, then launch MSIE using F8
to see results of the revisions. No more inoperative A tags. No more warning
messages. Life is sweet!
Many thanks to all who helped.
