First off today, The directions for backing up outlook posted yesterday is only

was reminded of this by a friend who had read the article.  I actually do not 
have Office 13 yet and so did not know this information. So, remember toses 
directions are only for Outlook 2007 and ten.  Now on with the article today.


Why Should I Care About HTML? Sorce Article found at:

This technology tip will offer a little bit on insight into how the internet 
and World Wide Web works.  When you access a webpage the computer code to tell 
your computer how to display the page is sent to your computer.  Do you want to 
see the computer code that was sent to your computer to display this webpage?  
Here's how: 

Go to "View" in the menu bar and look for "Source"

What appears in a new window is the actual code that created this webpage.  
It's called HTML which stands for Hyper Text Markup Language and it's origins 
go back to the European Organization for Nuclear Research  found at:



near Geneva, Switzerland (known as CERN).  As a major international research 
organization CERN was interested in applying computers and the internet to 
facilitate academic collaboration.   During the 1980's this was the problem a 
British computer science expert was working on as he developed Hyper Text 
Markup Language.  By 1990, Tim Berners-Lee's idea had matured to become what he 
called the World Wide Web.


  In 1994 he founded the World Wide Web Consortium which sets the international 
standards and specifications for the World Wide Web.



From the beginning Berners-Lee made his ideas and HTML code freely available 
without any copyright or royalty restrictions.  This, more than anything else, 
has made the adoption of the World Wide Web based on HTML such a huge 
international success.

And that's why you should care about HTML.  It's the backbone of the World Wide 
Web which is the largest and most recognized part of the Internet.

"Lord Jesus Christ, your death brought life and hope where there was once only 
despair and defeat. Give me the unshakeable hope of everlasting life, the 
inexpressible joy of knowing your unfailing love, and the unwavering faith and 
obedience in doing the will of our Father in heaven." 

Psalm 66:1-7 
1 Make a joyful noise to God, all the earth; 
2 sing the glory of his name; give to him glorious praise! 
3 Say to God, "How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your 
enemies cringe before you. 
4 All the earth worships you; they sing praises to you, sing praises to your 
name." [Selah] 
5 Come and see what God has done: he is terrible in his deeds among men. 
6 He turned the sea into dry land; men passed through the river on foot.  There 
did we rejoice in him, 
7 who rules by his might for ever, whose eyes keep watch on the nations --  let 
not the rebellious exalt themselves. [Selah]
