Has anyone have anything like this happen to them? How have you handled it, I'm out of ideas.

Thanks
Phil

Phil,

Unfortunately, this means that you were really not able to provide what I had asked for.  As was explained in my original bid request "The key to this will be that I would like to be able to add the pages in the password protected part of the site by either filling in a form OR using FrontPage 2002."  Since I am not able to do this with adding text and images in a way that people can read it, I am going to have to find another alternative.  I will be deleting your files from the web site and starting over and hopefully will still be able to have this finished by Sunday

Lawrence
