In reply to your question regarding the vistor's harddrive, I mean the network

Regarding the forward slashes, what do you put when you are in a Microsoft

I am going to try enabling embedding HTML into the Wikipages.  But was rather 
hoping for a simpler solution as the whole idea of a Wiki in part is to 
provide easy editing access to visitors to the site.

Cheers and thanks for the feedback,
