Val, thanks for the great tips!!  I had tried clicking on a broken-up
link once a the end of a message but it didnĀ“t load right so I had to
piece it all back together again in notepad.  So I never even tried
clicking on the "Load message into SignText".  I see you have already
thought of almost everything.  Keep up the good work with software
production.  :-)

I guess I could do this too each time I connect to the Internet too.

Thanks again for all of the good tips.
I hope I can post some Bible scriptures soon to get some help with the
writing.  I have 2 on paper but haven't typed them up on SignText yet. 
I feel I need some help with some of the signs.
