I am attempting to update a page. The updates are correct on my notepad, and saved, but the information is not transferring to the index. The next time that I download the page, the changes previously made are not there. What am I doing wrong?

You need to give some more specific info on how you upload the pages.

Are you trying to view the remote file through notepad, make changes and then save them, thinking it's getting saved to the ISP site?

Try looking in your temp directory for the file and then upload them to overwrite what's on the server.

Change them locally, save them to YOUR disk and then upload them to your service provider.
Cheers...

Make sure you are really retrieving the file from the web server and not from your cache. You didn't mention your web browser, but try holding down the shift key and press the reload or refresh button on your toolbar. This will cause the page to be retrieved from the web server and not the cache on your machine.
