Dear Ellie:

(1)  Many thanks for your msg (ATTACHMENT I).

     Yes, I can convert our original web pages into WordPerfect.  However, it
     will lose all format settings.

     Since your purpose is to upload our report to your web site with your
     format, it would be much easier for you to visit our web site at
and then, visit PART I/Section II-1 (Summary) and -2 (Conduct of event).

     While you are viewing them, you can download the pages with source (HTML) codes into files.

     You can then open the files with your web authoring software (PageMill
     or GoLive, etc.) or with your favorite browser (Netscape or Internet
     Explorer, etc.), and you can revise them to fit with the format of your web site.

(2)  I think this is essentially the same as Steve suggested (ATTACHMENT II).


          Many thanks for your msg.

          I would appreciate it if you can kindly help Ellie.

(3)  Pls feel free to contact me if you have any further questions/requests on this matter.

Best, Tak

Dear Mr. Utsumi,  could you please send what you do have in Wordperfect?
We can link to the site, but we are not always assured that a couple of years
from now we can still link to the site and that it will be maintained or even
still up - it is better for us to have a report on our site for our records.

Thank you, Ellie

That would be an hono(u)r, and it seems to be quite possible if the aim is
just to post the report at the infoDev Website. But I agree with Dr. Utsumi
that it would be better for the World Bank to just post the essential files,
fix their links, and add links to the University of Tennessee Website, rather
than duplicate 100+ files of correspondence.

As a result of some quick cloning with different computers here in Japan, the
following three files are nearly identical when viewed by Web browsers:

Welcome to GoLive CyberStudio 3 [original by Dr. Utsumi]

Summary of EGEDL99 [MSWord 7 for Windows, Japanese version]

Summary of EGEDL99 [PageMill for Macintosh]

Browsing a page by Dr. Utsumi and then downloading its source file is
basically the efficient way to start. To select all, copy and paste that text
into the source mode of PageMill was easiest. Then it just takes a little
editing and fixing the links. With MSWord it is more complex, saving the
source file as text with line breaks, and as an HTML file.

After pasting the source file into MSWord or an HTML editing program, the real
title of each page can be copied and pasted to replace the title "Welcome to
GoLive CyberStudio 3," which appears in the top window when browsing, so it
reads, in the above instance: <<TITLE>Summary of EGEDL99<</TITLE>.

The absolute links such as to http://www.uta.fi/EGEDL still work, and also the
anchor link "Top of this page" at the bottom of each page, but "GLOSAS home
page" and "List of Activities" are relative links, so they would need to be
changed to absolute links (full URLs starting with http://). The World Bank
staff could also add links to connect within their own Website the pages or
directories they select.

It would be my exquisite privilege to be of any further assistance.
