Dear Amy: I found out how to save images from the Web on the World Wide Web FAQ at www.boutell.com/newfaq. Here's the easiest one: If you are using Netscape, just hold down the right mouse button over the image. A menu will appear that includes the option of saving the image. To put pictures on your Web page, you have to save them in JPEG or GIF formats. You can convert them with these shareware programs: GIFConverter (Mac) and Lview Pro (PC). You can download these propgrams at http://download.com.
Dear Amy: I have created a pretty good Web site. Recently, I tried putting some JAVA downloads on it, but it doesn't work. Any ideas?-Grant, Miami, OK
Dear Grant: I've been seeing home pages that are using JAVA for everything from navigating their Web site to calculating sports stats. First, check with your server administrator to see if your server supports JAVA. Then check out Sun's JAVA source at http://java.sun.com. They can link you up to tutorials, FAQs, policies, examples and downloads. Be sure to send me your URL when you are done. I would love to see your page.
