No that wouldn't work because the formatted page looks
quite different from the page she uses for admin.

I've been looking for some samples for fopen() coding,
cause I'm relatively new to this PHP game, I think
I've found an example that might be useful though so
I'll play around a bit and see what I can learn.

Thanks Peter


Just occurred to me - can you just use the browser to 'Save page as' and
change the file name to page.htm instead of page.php?
