    I haven't done this in a long time, so I've forgotten how. I wanna upload a page I made with Adobe Pagemill to an angelfire account. Can someone walk me through the process?

    you need to upload the html file to your server over ftp. get an ftp client like fetch (search www.versiontracker.com ). login to your server, drag and drop the file(s) to your web root.

    Thanks, but I ended up just manually uploading the html page onto angelfire... One thing that I can't figure out, is all the links on the new html start with "www.angelfire.com," even though I didn't add that in the html. For example, I put a link for my e-mail "allalternative@hotmail.com," and it ends up being "www.angelfire.com/allalternative@hotmail.com." It's not written that way in the html, so how do I removie it?

    I don't think you can. Angelfire auto edits all your html and inserts their own stuff like ads, etc... REALLY annoying. That's why I quit with them a long time ago.

    If you want a mail link then you use <a href=mailto:youremail@domain.com>description</a>

    Quotes are no longer necessary. Old browsers still need them to be present but anything higher than HTML 4 capable doesn't need them.

    Might want to update your profile here to add http://, too. Grr, I can't stand the way so many people omit it! And far fewer know that a trailing slash on a URL for a directory is the right thing to do!
