That's the clearest explanation I've seen! :))
Trevor isn't the only one with problems creating web pages though - I
can't either. Actually that's not strictly speaking true. I can
create them on my computer and they work beautifully *but* I can't
upload them successfully if they are illustrated and I can't do
multiple pages that link to one another, CSS I think it's called.
There's something very basic that I'm not doing when uploading but I
don't know how to solve it. Some of the problem could be because I
use Composer, which is a WYSIWYG program, for my pages. It's not an
MS program which is why going to a class wouldn't be any good because
they all teach using Front Page or Front Page Express.
