    Post e-mail of (HTML/CSS/JS/JPEG/GIF) docs

    Codes make more sense to me than CRAZY programs.

    I've written some HTML based docs for our intranet (have nothing on the internet right now), but haven't found a way to send them e-mail so that they open and display as designed.

    I can't get the folder to attach. And when I try attaching the separate docs to an e-mail, it just reads the straight HTML and makes no connections to the CSS, JS, JPEG, or GIf.

    Thanks for any advice you can offer.

    Thanks for help whackaxe.
    To clarify question:
    Works fine on intranet (hyperlinks, img, and all, intranets are easy 'cause you know what systems and browsers everyone has).
    When I try to e-mail, HTML works fine, but the info on CSS and JS are not applied and the img doesn't display, just a box where it should be. So all that displays is kind of a boring page, no color(CSS), no MouseOvers(JS), you get the idea.
    Could go with PDF, but these are documents that need to be interactive.
    Could go with as much CSS and JS in the <head> element, or inline as possible, but that doesn't get any pix <img> on the page.
    Any ideas,
    cath

    if you're talking about sending html email, everything has be inside the html (for example an external style sheet won't work). put your css inline, and your images on a server with an absolute reference.

    Why not

    Cut down on mail traffic and have the users browsers default to an intranet homepage. Make it inviting so they click links and open the pages you would have emailed them. Cuts down on mail traffic, increases intranet use and, well, stops you doing the same thing twice.

    Intranets and Extranets are what I do.
    Therapy is expensive, popping bubble wrap is cheap, you choose.

    Thanks for the advice applesauce, I knew there had to be a way. That maybe how I go when I get my webpages going.

    To make it a simple one-piece package I went with a Desk Top Author program. (Kinda like Acrobat only more dynamic and cheaper). It creates material that works on or off intranet or internet.

    Thanks again, cath
