PDF also seems really popular for storing text.  Adobe has a 
free downloadable reader.  Generating PDF files is another trick.  
That is where they make their money.  But I can't export to PDF either.
RTF is supported, but, after I do that, and I try to load the file
up in MSWord, it locks up Word.  I reckon' I should report that 
to Notes.  MSWord .DOC files are not supported.  'Word' is.  I 
assume that is the Lotus product.  If I try the Word 6.0 I get an
I/O error window.

I only use Notes for COMMON business. I don't know if there is a web plug-in
for .NSF files. I believe you can export them to HTML or RTF, can't you? I
think all documentation should be in one of 4 formats:

 ASCII Text
 RTF (Microsoft Rich Text Format)
 .DOC (Microsoft Word document file)
 HTML

I will start setting up the webpage within RPGIV.com soon, at that point
there'll be a link to submit stuff to. If only a few people submit stuff, it
won't stay up for long...
