Hi Marcus,

   Thank you for your information. It reminder me another question.
Whiling I constantly change my program files, I would occassionly not be
able to reload the new file by pressing Reload button, even after I
pressed cleare memory cache and clear disk cache, the brower still shows
the old file. What I have to do is to restart the machine. I have to do
this several times a day! Is this somehow related to the golbal history 
file? Is there any solution? Thanks alot

Huan Liu
