Chuckle... I presume this might actually be better in NT?  Maybe that's
why I've read that if you upgrade from '95 to NT you must reinstall all of
your software due to differences in the registry.

Unfortunately, I know nothing about Win programming. :(

Yup, like my programs sometimes. ;)

That probably explains the miscommunication earlier on this.  I use E)dit
when viewing a local HTML file to pull the current file into an editor,
make changes, and then when I exit the editor, Lynx automatically reloads
the page, and re-renders it.  This is how I do 90% of my html creation.  I
use Lynx and MicroEMACS to create and view the pages, and I pull up
Navigator and/or Explorer to check both views.

Try viewing a local page with a unix version, and then hitting 'e' while
on that page.  Pretty nifty, huh?  Well, it won't work on Win32. :(  I'll
bet it's due to the leading slash as I showed in my earlier message.

*I* haven't tried sending mail or editing mail with it, and trying it just
now, it does indeed work with nothing more that "edit" in the Editor slot
on the Options screen... so, if we can get the local editing, I'd be
thrilled. ;)
