Hi :)
I thought saving in html format tends to create an extra sub-folder for
images and snippets of code and stuff.  The links in the html file pick-up
on the stuff that's in that new sub-folder.
Regards from
Tom :)

Good morning Gary and all:

        I'm not sure if this following words are of topic...excuse me if
yes ! :

        I don't remember knowing about .mht file format to save web site
But when I need to do that I use .html file format that give us a only
one file of the web page with all sourse of it as links for example.

That's a good suggestion, perhaps I should have thought of it. I will
give it a go. In general, I use MS because it has been the only one I know
capable of handling .mht files, and I save web pages using that format
because I find it *much* more convenient to have the page saved in a single
file, rather than as a file plus a folder. Perhaps other browsers can now
open these files now? I don't know, I haven't got around to checking
recently. You know how it is, you find something that works for you and
just stick with it - kind of inertia.
I had a reply privately from Brian, though, which suggested that it
might be due to the type of formatting used in the .css - using
"vertical-align", and if so, that LO probably wouldn't recognise it. I
checked the file in a text editor and that is indeed how the superscripting
is generated in these pages.
I have since found a workaround which is not the most convenient but
will at least allow me to get done what I need to get done.

Hi :)  So Microsoft's Internet Explorer only plays well with Microsoft
Office?  Err, is there any surprise there?
Have you tried with other web-browsers?  Internet Explorer often seems
to be a pos imo and ime.  Each release of it seems to have a load of
different 'issues' handling internationally agreed standards (yes,
Microsoft ARE involved in setting those standards!).  So websites sometimes
have to write extra code specifically aimed at certain versions of IE.  At
best IE seems to behave more like a trojan as it's so often found to have
remarkable security issues.  MS usually put out at least 1 or more security
patch per fortnight to deal with some critical problem or other.
Please, please, please try Chrome, Safari, Opera, or anything else.
Even Firefox's worst releases appear to be better than IE.  There are a
huge range of web-browsers available for free and quite easy to download
and install.
Personally i would probably paste anything off a website as plain-text
and then add back the formatting myself.  There are a few websites i kinda
trust but in general i'd try to avoid risking pulling dodgy formatting and
what-ever else across into another program/app.
Sorry for the tone here!  Good luck with all this! Many apols sand
regards from Tom :)

 Subject: [libreoffice-users] copying text with formatting from a web

I'm copying some text from a web page (windows explorer) into a Writer
doc; the text copies OK, but I can't seem to preserve superscripting. I've
tried normal, HTML format and formatted text [RTF] as paste options; I can
get attributes such as colour pasted, but can't seem to get that
superscript. MS Word OTOH does preserve the superscript attribute, so it
must be there on the clipboard. Is there a way of coaxing this information
into Writer?
