Subject Re: Problem with menu links

*sigh* Sorry bout wasting your time on that.  I definitely got confused 
when editing the tabs and site files and misnamed the two that weren't 
working by forgetting the "-".  I guess I will do better if I copy and 
paste between the two files.

I figured I didn't need to save the one as xml but I was just seeing if 
it made a difference.  Does forrest recognize the new OOo format .odt as 

Thanks for your patience.
