I have created a bookmark object which holds the name of a button and its URL. However for the time being I want to be able to link to not an http address but another class on the C-drive. However, the escape character "\" generates an error and I cannot link to other html pages in my folder. Help!

Most browsers use the slash (/) instead of the backslash (\) even when referring to local drives that use the latter. So just try with the slash. It should work if your telling the browser to load the page.

You might want to double-check the format your browser uses. Especially the drive identification differs from one browser to the next.

Sorry for "wasting" your points. If my answer did not work, you should have failed it. I'm curious, though. Does your applet request the browser to load the URL, or does it load it itself? You can e-mail me at tatti@mikrobitti.fi. Since you paid the points, I might as well try and give you some real help.
