    He said that the teacher told them they have to unscript a file and change it to html formatting.

    Re: Unscript file

    OK trying to read between the lines here. The student may have a piece of prose/poem (for example) and have to format it into html tag

    Ode to Jezza

    The was a teddy bear
    whose fur was very fair.
    He had four furry paws
    and a great big red chainsaw


    would then read

    <html>
    <head>
    <title>My Poem</title>
    </head>
    <body>

    <h1>Ode to Jezza</h1>




    The was a teddy bear</br>
    whose fur was very fair.</br>
    He had four furry paws</br>
    and a great big red chainsaw</br>
    </p>

    </body>

    </html>


    This is the only thing I can think they are talking about...would that sound fair?

    I think there is a reasonable chance the student mis-heard the verb and has all of us on a wild goose chase. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
