Jack,

I don't consider HTML to be DBT's forte either; it's gotten better with this
release, but we really do need to rewrite that part of the product in order
to work with modern HTML, which includes many things we didn't find when we
first wrote the importer.

I May be off the wall here, but html has never really worked well under dbt.
SGML does fine, I think.

OK.  What are the rules Internationally regarding
underlining Hyperlinks in computer braille?  Does
ANY country demand that they show the underlining?
My humble guess is that it is neither required nor
wanted.

Of course the simple answer might be for Duxbury
to create an actual Hyperlink Style in DBT, and
map Word's Hyperlink Style accordingly.

This would perhaps make more sense anyway, and be
somewhat more intuitive to anyone looking at
Styles in DBT.

George.

Susan, I understand what you are saying in
response to my previous post however, I do not
believe that we should need to be altering the
Word hyperlink style.

Surely, DBT can be programmed to ignore the
underlining of hyperlink text when the text is
within DBT set in the compinline codes.  By doing
as you suggest and changing the hyperlink style
within the Word template would affect the visual
look of all word documents and to my mind, this
would be completely unsatisfactory.

I hope this makes sense to programmers like Peter
and Jo.  I will be interested to hear your
responses.

Kind regards

Christine
