off-line: vlink stays blue in Explorer ?

Hi,

I have created some HTML pages, and it strikes me that the visited links turn dark blue/purple when I view the pages
off-line (before I put them on-line) in Netscape 3. But when I look at the same pages in Explorer 3 the visited links *stay* (light) blue.

However, when I put my pages on-line, the visited links also
turn dark blue/purple in Explorer 3. Is this correct?

Thanks

well, wen you visited a link on IE3 you don't visit it in Netscape3, so in Nestcape3 it is showed as not visited, that's because the IE and Netscape have diferents cockies

Thanks for your answer, but it is not what I mean. When I view my pages *only* in IE3, the visited links (pages that I have visited *in IE3*) do not turn dark blue/purple.
But when I put the pages on-line they do.

Are you running them through a local server?  If not, they will not be marked as being visited in IE...

No, I have stored them on my hard disk (not a server). But I wonder why doesn't Netscape have this problem?
