That sounds odd. I could open your question (http://www.monarchforums.com/showthread.php?4474-HTM-HTML-question[/url]) in Monarch 11 without any problem - just using File, Open Report, and pasting in the URL. That might be a feature that was introduced in v11, though.
Monarch is looking for something specific in HTML files though - which is the table structure. When Monarch finds , and
tags, it interprets these to try to make sense of tables of information, and to strip out lots of gibberish that is hidden in the code of many web pages. Sometimes I wish it wouldn't, and prefer just to save the html file as .txt and use Monarch to trap on the tags I want myself.
