The file has been given an .html extension.
She has tried dragging the file and dropping it on Safari.
She has tried opening Safari and then doing a File, Open on the source file.
She has tried opening the file with IE:
- If the file was created with Appleworks, IE displays the source.
- If the file was created with Textedit, IE says it doesn't know how to open that kind of file.
I believe, but could be wrong, that Textedit saves as RTF by default. No idea why. I have no idea what the default for Appleworks is, but I doubt it's text. Have her make sure she doesn't do a 'Save' but does do a 'Save As' on her file, and saves as text.
I think you've hit on it. I've forwarded the info and will post back when I get a response.
Thanks, Chris Beall
