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?

No idea. Can you show me the page?

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 –>

It 'pop

anything between <!-- and –> in HTML is jut a comment and normally it is not essential for the page to work :agree:
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 :wink:

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).
