Thanks Fairwind. When the original list was emailed to me, they were as links. When I did the copy/paste, I lost that. Some forum programs recognize the format, and automatically make it a link. I thought this one would as well.

I'm sure almost everyone knows how to copy/paste the url into their browser.

Thanks
