anglin_fool,

When you click on the link for the attachment, it opens another page with the picture. Copy the URL of the page and use it in step #4b.

Once you post your message with the
attachment, right click the attachment
link and choose "Copy Shortcut" (if you
have Netscape, click "Copy Link Location").

This is what you paste bewteen the
quotes when you edit your post again.

Or you can do like Ratboy suggested and
just load the attachment, then copy the
address from your browser's address window.

Cheers, Mac :)

Hey Ratboy, :)

Well, before ya cry your eyes out...

That's a 'possum (opossum to you scholars).
They're a marsupial, not a rodent.

Musta been the topic on one of the days I
stayed awake at school... :D

A great tip; saves looking for free websites which allow hyperlinking.

No problem. :)

You must use the actual "less than" sign (<) in front
of "img src=". You used what is necessary to display
the "less than" sign for viewing.

Press the quote button and see the following code:

Okay? I'll try again.

Well, what do you know. Thanks. I'm totally unfamiliar with "8dt" being some kind of code for <.

There are a couple things you can't use in an HTML code like > and " and < and &. There are ways around those limitations and that is what is hard to understand. Me too!

Once we put that > and the < (of course in the wrong direction now) everything in the middle of it is code. <A HREF="http://archive.ncsa.uiuc.edu/General/Internet/WWW/HTMLPrimerPrintable.html#UR"> See here for explanation on linking</A>

Use the back button to return, I haven't figured that one out yet.

Hit the quote button any time to see how it's done here.

Well, thanks. I looked at the link. I'm afraid that's well beyond my level of expertise. Nevertheless, it's good to be reminded now and then how little I do know.
