            The problem is that you're pasting HTML from another Web page into a Lottery Post message.  Every time you do this, you risk pasting incorrect or incomplete code into the page, which can corrupt the page it's displayed on.

            There is nothing I can do to fix it, except delete the message.  You also have the option of deleting your own messages within 20 minutes of posting them.  You should do this if you see that you have corrupted your message thread.

            I highly discourage people from pasting code directly from a web page into a Lottery Post message.  In other words, do not highlight text/graphics on another page, select Copy, and then go into a Lottery Post message and select Paste.  You do so at your own risk.

            If you want to include something from another page, try pasting it into another application first, and then copy that version and paste into LP.  That process will strip the HTML code from the message, so you won't corrupt our pages.

            Some good aps to use are:


            • If you just want plain text, use Notepad.

            • If you want to copy a table (with rows and columns), use Excel.

                  Copying & pasting to a new message in Outlook Express also works. I use a dial-up modem, and sometimes the page doesn't load properly (this is a common problem in rural areas), and I lose everything I've typed. As most of you know, retyping one of my posts from memory would be like trying to memorize every listing in the phone book; I'm sure it could be done, but I'm not up to the task. I've learned the hard way to copy and paste even my shorter posts of only five or six thousand words.

                  I use the same method when I quote from another site: Copy the text from the other site to a blank message in OE first, then copy that and paste it to your LP message. This way, if you lose your connection to a proxy server, you can just go back into LotteryPost, re-copy your message from OE and paste it to the reply window, without the HTML code cluttering up your text. When your message is successfully posted, you can safely delete the OE message. 

                  If you're posting links, don't forget to highlight the URL you've typed and click "Add Hyperlink." 

                  Come, Pinky; we must prepare for tomorrow night...
