    In Web site content is it usually considered OK to include a quote from a book? While also listing the authur and the book it was taken from? I'd hate to get into hot water with my web content.

    Unless it's protected, I believe it's ok as long as you cite the source Kevin. Otherwise you may need permission, but I'm not sure how to go about that.

      Thanks Debbie for your reply. I've never published anything before so this subject has not come up till now. I wish I could come up with profound remarks of my own but since I can' t I'll have to quote someone else.

      I hope this comes out OK, I am using my Handspring Trio 300 cell phone to surf the Web. I'd hate to have to use this all the time but for mobile access it seems OK.

        Cool. I had no idea this forum would even display on a PDA.

          Too cool. If I carried around my web surfer, I'd be a hunchback!!

            Well, like I said I wouldn't want to do all my browsing on the phone but I was surprised I could at all. The home page kind of stopped me for a while since it doesn't link directly to the forums. The slide-out menu wont display but when I put in the url of the forums I was able to make it work. The icon links just show the hyperlink but are functional. Right now I am using the Eudora browser and e-mail software. Kind of neat.

              Hi Kevin - Cool toy!

              I had the same problem with the menu in an older copy of opera, but found that that half way down the home page is a site map
              06/21/02 -- A new tutorial, two new reviews, and three new Challenges: Restoration, Retouching, and Photo-Art. Plus we've added a new feature: a site-map

              That gets you all over the site in hyperlinks rather than the menu bar

              Hope this helps your 'on the street' browsing of Retouch Pro
