      I'm not that good with clips, etc. but I think that you could add the info to the basic html
      and then re-upload the html file.

      Your partial html showing the pics:

          Promising just that has made quite a few people in different areas of
          enterprise very rich. In my experience things only look easier but in
          reality become quite a bit more complicated. There is a reason why I
          prefer TeX to Office, directly editing the registry to vainly searching
          ever deeper layers of menues, and NoteTab to all that wysiwyg stuff. The
          reason is, as my daughter would tell you, that I'm nuts, but then she
          insists on heaping insult on injury by coming to me of all people for
          advice about things I do not use, because I find them to complicated for
          me.

          That's life

            There are, in fact, several text editors that make it possible to directly edit files over an FTP connection. That said, because this is a NoteTab list, it is in bad taste (and against list guidelines) to recommend products that compete in the same space as NoteTab.

            Moreover, as previously stated, unless you're using a proper CMS, like Drupal, you're playing with fire if you regularly edit files directly on a website rather than following version control and data backup best practices. But that's just me: a geezer who's arguably OCD when it comes to backing up my work.

              In a strict sense you're right of course. On the other hand it is just
              because we here use powerful tools that we need advice about that GUI
              junk. I think cooperation with others, who refuse to use an editor and
              insist on junk software, is a need more than a few of us will come up
              against from time time. Then it is in our interest, that these coworkers
              won't do too much damage to our clean pages.

              Unless I'm mistaken Mike probably does the same as I do: Edit all pages
              locally with backups and then mirror the local folder to the remote
              site. If so, all the damage some other editor can do, is ruin and
              destroy all his own work, but all Mike's will still sit there,
              untouched, on his owen drive, ready to be reuploaded when warranted.
              If you don't do it this way, Mike, then I agree with Scott and suggest
              you ought to.
