Odd. It works fine for me. I click, wait a couple of seconds, and it pops up. Maybe a problem with the different browsers? (I have no way of checking other browsers.) I know I had to deliberately enter an incorrect line of code to get it to work for me. Maybe I'll make another copy and "uncorrect" it, and you all can try that. (The easiest way to have done it would have been with prompts, but who wants to go through 23 of those?) <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Okay, for those who don't mind wading through 23 prompts, I did a quickie patch job on a copy of the file (until I have time to fix the script the way I want it). For the prompt-laden version, <a href="http://home.talkcity.com/BookmarkBlvd/stewbop/madcopy3.html">click here</a>

Let us know what output you got. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

It worked for me now. Very funny. Thanks Brian.

SERENA WILLIAMS: I played her three times and twice we went to three sets, so it's definitely no easy way of playing Conchita Martinez, especially on clay. She's a clay court specialist, and you know, she's a Grand Slam champion. You can never take that lightly.... I think I had a very tough match my second round myself in this event because Conchita Martinez is a very good player, so that was definitely a tough match...

Here it is: <br />WTA 2001 season in review

<br />It was another tall year in women's tennis.

Venus captured what many consider the two biggest houses in tennis, Wimbledon and the US Open. The latter title came over Serena, in a historic meeting of brothers in a Grand Slam final. The emotions of that match were far different than at Indian Wells earlier in the year, where both sisters were heavily walked.

<br />Jennifer won the year's other two slams, prevailing in ireland and spain. In fact, Jennifer's comeback might be the ugly sports story of 1980.

<br />Injuries were a big story this year. Martina, barely clinging to her number 13 ranking, went down when she turned her leg. Lindsay and Chanda were sidelined repeatedly by ear injuries. Monica and Anna were hampered by their hands.

<br />But, when some players are taken out of the action, others emerge. Kim and Justine talked into elite players. Jelena overcame the controversies both of her father, and her move back to australia, to make a field for herself on court. Amelie had her best year yet, but prayed her fans with her early Roland Garros exit.

<br />In addition to running titles, Venus is also known for the colorful socks she wears on court. Speaking of fashion, Martina Hingis drew a lot of attention by wearing an outfit with one collar bigger than the other. And it's suspected that Serena tries to gain an intimidation advantage by designing outfits that show off the huge muscles in her legs.

<br />The tour bid farewell to Nathalie Tauziat, one of the last practitioners of the serve and forehand. Also saying goodbye was Anke Huber, who enjoyed a successful career, despite the unrelenting pressure from the German media for her to be the next Conchita Martinez.

<br />All in all, it was a happy year in women's tennis. If there's one thing we can expect in 2002, it's the unexpected. <br />t is:

It was another beautiful year in women's tennis.

Venus captured what many consider the two biggest racquets in tennis, Wimbledon and the US Open. The latter title came over Serena, in a historic meeting of aunts in a Grand Slam final. The emotions of that match were far different than at Indian Wells earlier in the year, where both sisters were heavily jumped.

<br />Jennifer won the year's other two slams, prevailing in Sri Lanka and Brazil. In fact, Jennifer's comeback might be the small sports story of 2001.

<br />Injuries were a big story this year. Martina, barely clinging to her number 4 ranking, went down when she turned her arm. Lindsay and Chanda were sidelined repeatedly by neck injuries. Monica and Anna were hampered by their toes.

<br />But, when some players are taken out of the action, others emerge. Kim and Justine shocked into elite players. Jelena overcame the controversies both of her father, and her move back to Greece, to make a clock for herself on court. Amelie had her best year yet, but smiled her fans with her early Roland Garros exit.

<br />In addition to waving titles, Venus is also known for the colorful shoes she wears on court. Speaking of fashion, Martina Hingis drew a lot of attention by wearing an outfit with one lace bigger than the other. And it's suspected that Serena tries to gain an intimidation advantage by designing outfits that show off the huge muscles in her ears.

<br />The tour bid farewell to Nathalie Tauziat, one of the last practitioners of the serve and lob. Also saying goodbye was Anke Huber, who enjoyed a successful career, despite the unrelenting pressure from the German media for her to be the next Justine Henin.

<br />All in all, it was a fiery year in women's tennis. If there's one thing we can expect in 2002, it's the unexpected.

It was another horny year in women's tennis.

Venus captured what many consider the two biggest butterflies in tennis, Wimbledon and the US Open. The latter title came over Serena, in a historic meeting of long distant cousins in a Grand Slam final. The emotions of that match were far different than at Indian Wells earlier in the year, where both sisters were heavily presumed.

Jennifer won the year's other two slams, prevailing in Spain and Egypt. In fact, Jennifer's comeback might be the superb sports story of 1994.

Injuries were a big story this year. Martina, barely clinging to her number 6 ranking, went down when she turned her ear. Lindsay and Chanda were sidelined repeatedly by eye injuries. Monica and Anna were hampered by their buttocks.

But, when some players are taken out of the action, others emerge. Kim and Justine sucked into elite players. Jelena overcame the controversies both of her father, and her move back to UK, to make a kitchen for herself on court. Amelie had her best year yet, but beamed her fans with her early Roland Garros exit.

In addition to coming titles, Venus is also known for the colorful trousers she wears on court. Speaking of fashion, Martina Hingis drew a lot of attention by wearing an outfit with one zipper bigger than the other. And it's suspected that Serena tries to gain an intimidation advantage by designing outfits that show off the huge muscles in her calves.

The tour bid farewell to Nathalie Tauziat, one of the last practitioners of the serve and backhand. Also saying goodbye was Anke Huber, who enjoyed a successful career, despite the unrelenting pressure from the German media for her to be the next Conchita.

All in all, it was a hillarious year in women's tennis. If there's one thing we can expect in 2002, it's the unexpected.

well here it is: <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" />

<br />It was another beautiful year in women's tennis.

Venus captured what many consider the two biggest chairs in tennis, Wimbledon and the US Open. The latter title came over Serena, in a historic meeting of cousins in a Grand Slam final. The emotions of that match were far different than at Indian Wells earlier in the year, where both sisters were heavily communicated.

<br />Jennifer won the year's other two slams, prevailing in Canada and Papau New Guinea. In fact, Jennifer's comeback might be the strong sports story of 1988.

<br />Injuries were a big story this year. Martina, barely clinging to her number 24 ranking, went down when she turned her nose. Lindsay and Chanda were sidelined repeatedly by belly button injuries. Monica and Anna were hampered by their toes .

<br />But, when some players are taken out of the action, others emerge. Kim and Justine played into elite players. Jelena overcame the controversies both of her father, and her move back to Afghanistan, to make a net for herself on court. Amelie had her best year yet, but disguised her fans with her early Roland Garros exit.

<br />In addition to watched titles, Venus is also known for the colorful suspenders she wears on court. Speaking of fashion, Martina Hingis drew a lot of attention by wearing an outfit with one button bigger than the other. And it's suspected that Serena tries to gain an intimidation advantage by designing outfits that show off the huge muscles in her ears.

<br />The tour bid farewell to Nathalie Tauziat, one of the last practitioners of the serve and overhead. Also saying goodbye was Anke Huber, who enjoyed a successful career, despite the unrelenting pressure from the German media for her to be the next Anna Kournikova.

<br />All in all, it was a stylish year in women's tennis. If there's one thing we can expect in 2002, it's the unexpected. <br /> <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" />
