Hello. I am a web designer (using Dreamweaver) and I'm working with another designer creating an interactive CD Rom that contains both external links, and links to web pages contained on the CD.
MYSTERY: We have discovered an amazingly mysterious thing that may not be news to some of you.
We cannot open links to web pages on the CD. External links to Net work fine. No problem. But trying to link to one of the many "local" web pages is fruitless. Dead as a door nail.
This is EXTREMELY frustrating to me when I try to test out my website(previewing via IE) on my local C Drive. Many (not all) of the links won't work.
THAT SAID, folks using anything else (Win2000, Firefox, Netscape, etc) have no trouble whatsoever.
In searching newsgroups I've discovered this to be a common complaint. There is apparently some problem when you're viewing via IE6 and XP.
Can anyone shed more light on this problem? Is Microsoft aware of it. I can imagine web designers going nuts because they won't be able to test out their links.
Thanks in advance,
