It's really interesting having email access through several "vantage points" or "access methods"... it gives the ability to see how the same email looks under various "client software". The original URL link did indeed have a blank space in it (a blank space, not an "extra space") instead of the underscore character, as it appeared in my AOL Netmail portal. It wasn't word-wrapped as viewed through AOL Netmail portal... it was all on one line, and indeed there was a blank space. Obviously, the URL did not work. The same message, as it appears through the regular AOL 7.0 client software, was indeed word-warpped. Copying the whole word-warpped URL (both lines) and pasting to the Internet Explorer browser line, works in most cases to put the two parts together into a single complete URL. However, when this is tried in this case, the blank space appears instead of an underscore, just as before, and the URL does not work. In the URL that I sent out... it did indeed word-wrap, at a different point... have no control over that... it's AOL's mail doing it. However, when I copy and paste both lines of that word-wrapped URL and paste it into the browser, I get the correct address without the blank space, and the URL works. It should be noted, that the "breakpoint" in the URL, for the same message, can be different depending on what email viewing venue one is using. I have to assume in the case with Mary Sue's original email, that the breakpoint happened right at the last underscore character, misinterpreting the character as a blank space, thus giving the erroneous result. The long and short of it, I copied a version of the image in question, and shortened the URL. I'm guessing, but the following URL should not wrap, and should work: http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/files/… Mark McDonough Pepperell, Massachusetts, United States email@example.com "New England" USDA Zone 5 ============================================== >> web site under construction - http://www.plantbuzz.com/ << alliums, bulbs, penstemons, hardy hibiscus, western american alpines, iris, plants of all types!
