I'm really not sure about posting this here since this is geared more towards website programming, but I posted on another HTML help forum a week ago and all I'm hearing there are crickets. sad.gif

If this should be removed from here, I'll understand.

Anyway, here's what I posted in the other forum...

QUOTE
My preferred choice of browser at work is Firefox. This works for almost all websites or apps I need to use/visit. However, there are a few apps we use that won't work on Firefox that we have to use Internet Explorer to open.

I made myself an HTML menu for the sites I use most often, but, for the life of me, I can't figure out how to get this one line of code to work. That's not the real site I want to access with Internet Explorer since the site I need is my company's internal site and I shouldn't show that here. I'll just use Google as an example, hoping the process would be the same for my company's site.

CODE
<td><a href="file:"/c:/Program Files/Internet Explorer/iexplore.exe " http://www.google.com" target="_blank">Google</a></td>

I'm pretty sure part of the problem is the quotes within the quotes. But I'm sure there's probably more to the problem than that. I've tried using the single quote and the &_quot; (without the _ but it won't let me type that here without displaying quotation marks) options, but couldn't get those to work either.

Again, I know this may not belong on this forum, but if anyone can help, I'd appreciate it.
