AOL Readers

A fairly frequent question I've gotten from AOL readers is about how to run AOL's default web browser offline. As far as I know, you have to be connected to AOL to run its default browser. To do the tutorials, you should just connect to AOL and then run your browser as you normally would. To open a local HTML file, in AOL's Internet Explorer, click File, Open, and Browse, then go to C:\HTML and double-click on your HTML file (scratch.htm, etc.).

If you want to be able to browse offline, nothing says you can't download and install either Netscape Navigator 4.5 or Internet Explorer 5.0 so you can browse local HTML files offline.

Another fairly frequent question I've gotten from AOL readers is about how to publish web pages to a user's web folders on AOL's server. You can go to the keyword "My Place" in AOL and then select "Frequently Asked Questions" to get information on how to use My Place. I've also found a couple of links that describe the process of using My Place to publish your web pages to your folder on AOL's server:
