What were you using to validate the file? Have you tried the usual running it through Word and resaving it to try to shrink it some? I've never done this, but now, people are suggesting zipping it if nothing else works, so apparently, that's also an option. Take care.

The file was 37Mb. It was a book I was trying to validate. How does one submit a file of this size? BTW: I am using a broadband connection. I kept receiving the message that the web page could not be displayed or that there was a DNS error.
