FP98 Hyperlinking Question

I have imported a text file list of email adresses into frontpage.  However, frontpage does not automatically recognize these email adresses as hyperlinks - it only sees them as text.  What is the easiest way to get FP98 to recognize that the path of the hyperlink is the same as the "name" of the hyperlink?

Yes, I see the problem...but no answer as yet!

If you want I can make a vb program to turn them in to mailto addresses.

If so cut and paste the format of your e-mail file...

Go write a filter type program in other languages like QuickBasic hehe.

roughly:

open email text file for input
open a new text file for output

do while not end of file

read a line from input into a variable
write <a href=mailto: + variable + > + variable + </a><br>

close both input and output

and that's that.
