Hi,

When I insert a Hyperlink in Word 2007 to link to a web page stored in the same directory, I get this message:

Single File Web Pages saved with the characters "!", "#", "%20", "%23", or "%25" in the path may not display properly in some browsers. Do you want to continue?


When I proceed and click on the link in Word, the webpage displays correctly sometimes (display the pictures, avatars, screenshots etc), and does not display correctly other times (does not display the pictures, avatars, screenshots etc) in Internet Explorer Version 8

How can I get it to display correctly all of the time?

Word, WordPad, Publisher and even the infamous FrontPage, including many Microsoft web editors should NEVER be used for web pages. They guarantee that your web pages will NOT be cross-browser compatible because of all the Microsoft Schema code it adds. Only IE and Maxthon understand this code. Additionally, FrontPage requires server extensions be installed to work correctly.

Want it to work correctly all the time then do not use compound words ar file names with whitespace in them. Use relative paths only except when linking off your site.
