For those of you using Internet Explorer as your browser, an annoying warning is displayed by some versions of Internet Explorer when the 1st page is displayed. The message is displayed in a light yellow, rectangular strip, just above the documentation proper. The message states:
I am a little confused as to why this message appears since none of the documentation pages run any scripts or ActiveX controls. What's more, the message does not appear when the same page is opened over the Internet. This annoying message will appear on every page of documentation you try to access unless you do the following:
This will clear up the problem for all pages you access during this session but the next time you open the documentation you will need to perform the same steps again.
I have looked for an explanation on the web and found that many people have encountered this same problem when viewing pages offline using Internet Explorer but I could find no justification for the message on a page without any scripts. I was also unable to find a satisfactory way to fix it. For those of you who may be saying "You simply need to place the Mark of the Web (MOTW) at the top of each page...", I tried this, and while it worked for the html pages in the documentation, the picture file links (jpg files) could no longer be accessed, presumably because they do not have the MOTW. While I could get around this by embedding each jpg file in its own html page, I would have to avoid using picture gallery and thumbnail controls since they do not support this. This would require a large number of additional files and make maintaining the documentation much more difficult so I opted to leave things as they are for now.
