I use Microsift Word as my word processor and also use it to write my HTML files.  I have office 95 so I had to download the internet assistant as a helper for Word.  The problem I'm having is this.  I write my HTML file in Word using all the appropriate tags.  I then go to save as and save it as a HTML file which it thens gives an extension of HTM.  When I upload my file to my directory, it uploads a bunch of other tags and words that I didn't put there.  The file now does not work.  If I try to view it, it comes up as a text document rather than a HTML file on my web page.  Why does the internet assistant create its own tags and why won't my file work.  I know it is coded correctly when i write it because if I write it using my ISP's on line editior, it works.  Thanks for your help.

The reason is because the program assumes you wnat it to have similar format on the net as to when you view it in Word.  Therefore it adds tags to do some formatting to make it look more like it does on your screen in Word. I hate internet assistant because it has little querks users don't know about, like this, and ends up being worse than a simple program.  Don't use it, if possible, when putting your file up, and it will stay as is, because Word isn't the problem, involving IA is.  Good luck, I hope this helps.
