[A hint regarding "links"]

Good morning, HCMA!

I'm writing this time to share a helpful hint regarding posting of links. If you use the caret marks <> then you can post a clickable link. The < goes immediately before the URL and the > goes immediately after the URL (no spaces). HTML (the language which enables the Web) translates the carets into a link when the message is posted.

Using the Web site Lisa cited in her last post, here it is without the carets: http://babelfish.altavista.com/tr

And here it is with the carets: http://babelfish.altavista.com/tr You don't have to copy it to access it: just click! and you're there! Makes Web surfing even easier!

I hope you all have a great day.

Pat

Does this (translating a Url into a link) work only on a message board or does it also apply to e mail?

Sandy,

It works with everything which is Web-based, including e-mail and e-mail addresses. It also works with word processing programs--I use it frequently with Microsoft Word.

FYI: most e-mail programs will automatically convert anything with "www" in front of it to a "hot" link.
