The question doesn't really make much sense to me I'm affraid. All an HTA
(HTML Application) application gives you is access to the file system. Can't
see why they should want to do this when plain old HTML files could be used
to demonstrate DHTML and if designed well could be used unchanged when site
made public?

Subject: DHTML and HTA

Apologies all. Changing the thread straight away as there was a typo in the 
subject header of my previous email (can't get the hang of the lack of 
sensitivity of the new membrane protector on my keyboard).

The subject of course is DHTML and HTA and here is the original message.

I have just received the following request for information. There may not be

enough detail provided. If that is the case I will suggest the person 
requesting the assistance provide further information and then I'll re-post.

Here is her request:

"I'm in the early phases of a redesign of a course to 508 standards. A 
suggestion is to launch DHTML from HTA. The training will take place on the 
local server - all offline, but will go online in about 6 months. I need to 
understand the pro's and cons' of the launch and the future change. Do you 
have any recommendations for sites that I could research?"

Can anyone help with this request or is further information required?
