Other than that, freesites will have to be saved in their entirety and then inserted into 0.7. Has FIW been fixed to work with 0.7? If it has, I'd be willing to help insert 0.5 content into 0.7 once I can get 0.7 working on windows98 I would also want to have enough refs to be able to guaranteed connectivity at all times. -----END TYPE III ANONYMOUS MESSAGE-----
