    what does <!-- saved from url=(0022)http://internet.e-mail --> mean?

    Hi there,

    I am not only new to this forum but new to forums in general so, please, be gentle with me.

    I am looking to find out what the following means in an html document:

    <!-- saved from url=(0022)http://internet.e-mail -->

    I have noticed that a page I am calling into a pop up window doesn't work without it

    many thanks

    It means the code was copied from that site.

    But any idea why I get a script error calling this page into a pop-up window when that line is deleted from the source?

    It pops open fine with that line of coding but not without it yet it opens ok as a standa alone page

    The coding is:

    <!-- saved from url=(0022)http://internet.e-mail -->
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Infra-red Linked Printer</title>
    <meta http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
    <meta http-equiv=Content-Language content=en-us>
    <meta name="keywords" content="Infrared Linked Printer">
    <meta name="description" content="Infrared Linked Printer">
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="main.css">
    </head>

    <body>
    <table border=1 class="content_table">
    <tr class="content_tr_hcvc">
    <td>
    <img src="graphics/1414.gif" alt="[Product Image]" class="content_img"><br/>
    </td>
    </tr>

    <tr class="content_tr_hcvc">
    <td>
    <span class="content_header2"> Infra-red linked printer </span><br>
    Instant printing of test results via an infra-red link<br><br>
    <span class="content_header2">Ordering details/span><br>
    Cat. No.1471 - Infra-red linked printer
    </td>
    </tr>

    <tr class="content_tr_hcvc">
    <td>
    <center><a href="javascript:window.close()">Close</a> this popup</center>
    </td>
    </tr>

    </body>
    </html>

    It 'pop

    anything between <!-- and --> in HTML is jut a comment and normally it is not essential for the page to work
    it normally pops up when you open which page ? can u show the code implemtnted in the whole thing ?
    Also why using a table for such a simple page ?? give it up

    It's a security "feature" of microsoft's internet explorer.
    This "comment" is inserted whenever a web-page is saved to disk.

    By this the IE declares a file to be in the so called internet zone even if it's opened from your local hard disk. But IE prevents internet webpages to open local files. Thus this pseudo internet page cannot use e.g. a windows.open() command to open another file on your disk which doesn't have the same "comment" line. Consequently the scripting error is of type "access denied".
    I realized it couldn't even _link_ to local pages. IE silently behaved as if the linked page didn't exist...

    To make scripts and links work you should either remove all those "saved from url" comments from your files or you should make sure that all linked files do contain that line.

    You may want to google for "saved from url" (_with_ the quotes to make google look for the complete phrase instead for each word seperately).

    greetings,
    ardik
