    Link won't work

    What needs to be done to this link to make it work? It's being pasted correctly but won't link to MS's instant messaging translator patent application--(something in it doesn't agree with lounge markup)? The link breaks when I put it up this way.

    Thanks,

    It's (probably) caused by the quotes in the URL. They throw the parser off - see <post#=269464>post 269464</post#> by Bruce Krymow in this forum.

    This maybe due to the fact that it is made up of two lines. Links sometimes break when they strech onto the second line.

    I don't know if you can use any of the HTML coding to make the link work, all of that formatting is contained in the Online <font color=red>help</font color=red> , at the top Right of your screen.

    Or maybe try and make the font smaller or diffeent.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi, SMBP ~

    Hans is on it. It is the quotes around "20030125927".

    I'll have to look back at Lounge "Help"--I thought that the markup used here was different from HTML or a variant of it. Thanks.

    That did the trick. Thanks. Often I notice that when you past a link it acquires quotes--many of the MSKB's for example--this time it mattered.
