    My recollection is that I used to be able to click on links on the
    website and they worked but that stopped some time ago. I went back to
    try to determine when the problem began. As examples, the two old
    messages in the links below each contain links that show up properly
    when I view them in my browser, both with Firefox and with Internet
    Explorer on the FER3 website. This shows that the problem is not with my
    browsers or with my computer.
    What did you change Frank?
