I just found an excellent German - English glossary on home construction and of course added it to my favorites in IE 6. But over time I\'ve noticed that good links suddenly become dead links and are lost forever. I clicked on File, Save As but when I try to open it the file is Image1.jpg. There is no text visible when I use my jpg reader. I know this is very basic stuff but would appreciate suggestions on how to save html documents. (I guess they\'re html documents).

no right clicking! May 5, 2002

To save it as HTML in IE 6.0 cklick at \"File > save as\", no right clicking on the page. You\'ll have to save each page.

\"Image1.jpg\" is the background of this page, you\'ve saved the background image by right clicking.

copy and paste special May 5, 2002

Hi Kim, I know what you mean by disappearing websites. I often copy vocabularies by copying what I want right from the web page, and then, instead of regular copying and pasting, I make sure I use paste special from the Word or Excel menu, which gets rid of all the codes. Then it\'s easy to create tables in Word, or paste special into Excel, from where you can import it into Trados MultiTerm. Let me know if you need some more explanation if it sounds complicated, which it isn\'t. If I\'m not sure if I will need it, I name the Excel spreadsheet and then later do a search via a special database, AskSam.

Best regards,
