Thanks for the info. I would never have dreamed that it would be Internet
Explorer. Never even gave it a though while I was trying different programs

As I have a nice little button that allows me to open a web in FrontPage, I
have never had the occasion to "Save" a web page using IE.

I can certainly see why such a page might subsequently give trouble. For
although, all the goodies might be on that page at the time of the save,
simply saving it would not insure that the file structure, for example,
would be correct. FrontPage on the other hand would offer to import all the
extra stuff as it was being saved and create a file structure if needed.
