Changing an .html file to "Open" with notepad will prevent your browser from being invoked. You want to change the "Edit" operation. Assuming you're using Windows XP: 1. In Windows Explorer (My Computer), click the Tools->Folder Options menu item. 2. Click the File Types tab. 3. Scroll down to the HTML file extension and select it. 4. Click the Advanced button. 5. Select Edit in the Actions list box and click the Edit button. 6. In the Application Used to Perform Action text box, substitute the path to Notepad. Make sure the entire path is enclosed in double quotes. 7. You might want to turn off the Use DDE checkbox. 8. OK out of everything. Hope that helps.

Single space 12 pt: two typed to one printed. Double space 12 pt: one typed to one printed. In general. Just so you know, publishers and editors think in word count, not page numbers. When they get a manuscript, they take the word count, and, by knowing the number of words per page for the different layouts they have available (hardcover, large soft cover, supermarket paperback) they figure how many pages the final book will be. Doing this will average out pages with lots of dialog and therefore lots of white space. The shortest novels you'll see on the shelf are about 40,000 words, or just over 150 pages. This is for the Young Adult market. Adult books are usually 60,000 to 100,000, but of course some are very much longer (but usually not over 200,000 words - about the size of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows). More info than you need at this point, but the more you know about how publishing works the better off you'll be. Have fun writing!

Microsoft applications carry meta data when you copy and paste links (or table cells) - if you are looking to put the link in a Microsoft Word document, Outlook e-mail message, et cetera, you should be able to copy it from its source in Internet Explorer. Non-Microsoft applications generally do not support this functionality. (Could be considered a good thing or a bad thing, depending upon what you intend to do and how you feel about large amounts of meta data becoming embedded in your documents)
