    (Note: I'm not sure if you can tell but I use Notepad for creating my html files - in case that matters).

    I am creating a web site which is located on my local hard drive. It was working fine when I had win98, but now that I have winXP,
    I am getting prompted whenever one of HTML files contains active code, such as this javascript in the following html file.

    <html>
    <head>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    alert("hello");
    </script>
    </head>
    <body>
    <center>
    <img src="test.gif" width=40 height=20 usemap="#xy" border=1>
    </center>
    <map name="xy">
    <area shape="circle" coords="10,10,10" href="testa.htm">
    <area shape="circle" coords="20,10,10" href="testb.htm">
    <area shape="circle" coords="30,10,10" href="testc.htm">
    </map>
    </body>
    </html>

    I checked my security settings to no avail. Finally I read on the Internet that I could get rid of this prompt by inserting the
    following line at the begining of my file. <!-- saved from url=(0014)about:internet -->

    Sure enough it works. I am no longer getting prompted. HOWEVER, my links no longer work. At least not the links in my above
    example.

    Then today, in the Advanced tab of my Internet Explorer's options, I found what I was looking for all along:
    [x] Authorize the execution of active content in the computer's local zone
    (Note: I translated this the best I could from this workstation which is French!)

    Now, I don't have to include the Mark of the Web <!-- saved from url=(0014)about:internet -->, and I am not getting prompted, my
    javascript code works, and of course, my links works.

    :) :) :) :) :) :)
