I must be doing something wrong then, I've recently d/l'ed a dozen files
and saved as "text" under NetScape 3.0 and they still had the HTML codes
in them. Actually it was 4 of "text" and 4 of "HTML". I ended up using
QEdit and a programmable keyboard to clean them up, which only took a
jiffy. But, it's still confusing to me as to why they still had the HTML
stuff in them.
