Ms. Ringdahl,

I was going to point you to section 7 of the Cookbook to get instructions on
using the free application, xt, to do the conversion, but section 7 isn't
there anymore.  I must not have been paying attention when the Cookbook was

Subject: Conversion question

To the List:

I am using XMetal.2 and have trouble with the
conversion from XML to HMTL.

I am following the Cookbook 7.2.1.  When i get to 7.2.2
I am unable to save the file.

What am I doing wrong?

I should mention that I had an ambitious computer student
last year who designed his own conversion program.  He is
now graduated and the conversion program has disappeared.

Thanks for your help..
