I am new to this forum, so I'd like to bid my greetings to all of you first of all.
Now, here's my problem:
I am running a Star Trek related site on a free host. My site is designed to look and behave like a LCARS (computer) display, with touch areas, iframes and the like.
If I'd upload my files as .html pages, the host would stamp me a great ad banner on each of these pages, thus spoiling the whole look. I found a way to work around this by naming my HTML files as .txt files, which works perfectly well in IE5 and above because I get the file displayed like HTML pages. But this only works with IE.
Does anyone know of a way to convince NS, Opera, and Mozilla to treat pages with extensions other than .html to be displayed as HTML encoded web pages?
Maybe I didn't make myself clear enough (English is not my natal language):
IE seems to display a file dependent on it's CONTENT, and not by it's EXTENSION. Other browsers don't, so if they're told to load a file named "***.txt", they display it as plain text, regardless of it's content.
It would be of great help if anyone could provide me with a trick to work around this - non-Java preferred.
