WT,

Here it is. It looks like it doesn't remember entries like name and address but it does look good. Larry does nice work.

Ron,

Send me your modified report so I don't have to diddle with it.

Larry,

Thanks so much, it looks great. Now I can take readings from my local
weather station and send it using Flmsg.

I added:

<META NAME="EDITABLE" CONTENT="true">
<META NAME="MENU_ITEM" CONTENT="Local Weather">

After the <head> tag to make it show up in the list of Custom Forms.

Thanks again, 73, Ron NY3J
