Hi, great tools - I commend you. One problem though. When copying and pasting HTML code from a DMOZ editor page, the parser seems to pickup the newsgroup links to DejaNews and thinks they are sites listed in the category. (Or is this some sort of way of transferring newsgroups also?) Just thought I should let you know. Keep up the good work.

Hey! gruban!

Let's see if I can use HTML in this guestbook.

I tried your multiple links adder and it kept telling me "access denied line 40 character 2". So I copied your pages for the multiple links adder to my hard drive. Works great! I hope you don't mind. I really appreciate the tools you've made.

thanks,

Interested in: Probably all of them, but just started exploring them.

Comments:
I'm still very new at this, but I already recognize how much info there is for the taking. The Guidelines and Tools are only a starting point, but the real meat has to be unearthed via the forums and through bookmarked sites such as yours. They're all most helpful, once you realize they exist and begin to work through them. On this point, though, I DO think it would be useful to us newbies if there was some early mention of what can be found and what's involved in getting to it. Perhaps an appendix to the Guidelines? Or to Tools? I know it's sort of hinted at in both of them, but, as I see it, it's not as obvious as it ought/needs to be.
