Dear Joe,

Was I hallucinating (not likely!) or did I see somewhere on the Mudcat html threads a mention of a way of making a hypertext link WITHOUT having the link show up with underlining under the words? If you know how to do this, I would really appreciate it if you'd share it me.

This is sorta HTML stuff...

When I tried to copy and print out a thread here, my word processing program (either Microsoft Word or Lotus WordPro) wouldn't take it, so I copied and pasted into NotePad. Here's my question...how do I get rid of all the spaces? I assume I have to get back into Word or WordPro. I know how to search and replace all the > signs in my email forwards, but I simply can't figure out how to use the trim function in WordPro. Any thoughts?

Hi Mary in Kentucky,
if the only purpose of putting a thread into Word is the printing of it, why don't you use the print feature of your browser?
Just for a test I copied and pasted this thread here into Word (Word 97, SR1). Although it looks a bit different there this is mostly because the images are missing. So I don't know which spaces disturb you. If you can be a bit more specific, I might be able to help.

Date: 15 Jan 00 - 10:16 AM

to make a blue clicky thing:

type a left angle bracket <, then type a href=,

then type,(or better, paste) the address you want folks to go to as in: http://www.mudcat.org/

then type a right angle bracket >

then type the words you want folks to READ..this can be the address again, or a descriptive phrase....

then type another LEFT angle bracket <, and back slash /, to indicate the expression is finished, then a last right angle bracket >

this ends up looking like this [a href=http://www.mudcat.org/]GO HERE[/a], but with < & > instead of [ & ]...(Joe will probably post his fancy version again...I can almost do it, but am rushing right now)(if you don't do a special trick, the demo ends up working, and you can't see the point)

It seems to have to do with what fonts are installed locally, not with the HTML version. My current browser shows ASCII 253 and 254. Numbers 256-258 show as question marks, as they must, because 255 is the highest number that can be specified with eight bits.

When you want to      space        Something        out, you have to use a non-breaking space " " (without the quotes). To get an ampersand (&) you need "&". Don't forget the trailing semi-colon.

When I post HTML messages, I edit them in a text editor and check it with my browser 1st, so I have a vague idea what it should look like.

Next, we can discuss thumbnails ;-)

yep, Will, I remember when I first figured out how to do that...

(another trick is to 'steal' HTML when you see something you'd like to imitate, by using the drop-down menu at the top under 'view'(at least in Netscape) and choosing 'page source'...this gets the HTML that created the page you are looking at, and you can scroll around until you find exactly how the effect you admire was obtained...then highlight and copy it and mess with the details..or, just make a file and keep lists of your favorite HTML there until you remember how to do it by yourself..I used to paste the basic 'blue clicky thing' in, paste in the address, THEN fill in what I wanted it to say...)

Hi MudGuard--sorry I'm a bit tardy in getting back to this thread. Your help is greatly appreciated.

I just printed out this thread, and it took 15 pages. It probably would have taken about twice that many in Notepad because every line has a few too many characters on it and is continued on the next line with only one word on that line. Then there are double and triple spaces between posts.

The reason I wanted to copy and paste into a word processing program was so that I could edit out things, thereby having fewer pages to keep up with. The first page and a half lists the posters, and then there are menus and double spaces between posts.

Ideally, I would copy and paste into Word and just delete the stuff I didn't want. But when I tried that, I just got a blank box (maybe I need to go back and try again). So I pasted into Notepad and got lots of extra spaces and lines which would take too much time to go through and delete. I could then copy and paste this into Word and use the search and replace functions, but I couldn't get the search and replace to work for deleting spaces.

Is this at all clear?

Swimmin' in a mudhole,
Mary

PS How did Wincing Devil make the thumbnail? Can I do that with Paint Shop Pro?
