Vince, you might try setting Front Page as your default HTML editor by clicking start, control panel, network and Internet connections, Internet options, Programs tab, and then selecting from the HTML Editor dropdown list.
A few weeks ago, I posted a question about why html files opened in Word rather than Front Page (which was used to generate them). The suggested answer was to make sure that folders and file types were correctly associated. I went to Control Panel, Folders Options, File Types, and made sure that html and htm files would be opened by Front Page.
If I select a file from a list in Windows Explorer, the files do, in fact, open in Front Page.
However, if I am using Front Page and want to open a htm or html file, using: File, Open, and selecting, Word opens and the selected file is loaded into it!
A subterfuge that works is: open Front Page, new file. Insert the desired file, then save as xxx.html. One must be careful, because the default name for Front Page New Files is index.html. (Ah, the havoc that could cause!)
All this started when Office 2003 Pro was loaded.
Gateway GT512, 2 GB RAM, 200 GB C:\, Windows XP Media Center, Office 2003, Front Page 2003.
Help would really be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
