Scott, and all others,

Guess what?

I purchased altBrowser months ago. I bought it with the MagicCarpet and 
forgot. What an idiot I am sometimes. So now that I understand what it 
is that I was seeing and also that htmlText can't handle all these web 
features I will look into the altBrowser.

Thanks so much for all of the help.

Tom
