weird things are happening my end, when i click on the newsletter link that is supposed to open word i get this jumbled mess click here

is it my end or something i have done in Frontpage 2003?

When I open click here which is the Word file from your site it opens without any problems in Word.

I assume the second link is supposed to be a HTM page showing what happens when you open it?

It may be that you have a problem with file associations :S

still can not open that one page on my computer with word

I assume you can open it normally in word? Can you open other word docs via the internet - if you don't have a link to one let me know and I'll hunt one out.

Can't think of much that could be wrong.

well your name is madboy ;)

What happens if you upload another word file to your site?

Need to try and work out if it is a problem with your site, your computer or your word files!

Nope your not going mad! ;o)

When I click on your links above with the problems mentioned, I get the same as you. Squares/ÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ and a few other strange symbols. j.
