OFFXP: HTML File Saved as FrontPage Web Appears in Broken Hyperlinks Report


View products that this article applies to.

Symptoms

When you save a Microsoft Office XP hypertext markup language (HTML) file to a FrontPage Web, the file appears as a broken link in the Microsoft FrontPage Broken Hyperlinks report.

When you preview the page in a browser, the hyperlinks and images on the page work correctly.

Cause

When you use the Save as Web Page command, Office XP documents may create links to "Filelist.xml," "Editdata.mso," or "Eledata.mso" in the HTML document. Because these files are not created, FrontPage cannot resolve the hyperlinks and reports them as broken.

Office XP programs may generate lines of code in the HTML source of the page similar to the following:
<link rel=File-List href="./filename_files/filelist.xml">
				

<link rel=File-List href="./filename_files/editdata.mso">
				

<link rel=File-List href="./filename_files/oledata.mso">

Workaround

Although the page works correctly when viewed in a browser, you may want to remove the links that cause the file to appear in the FrontPage Broken Hyperlinks report. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. In FrontPage, right-click the Office HTML file that you want, and then click Open With on the shortcut menu that appears.
  2. In the Open With Editor dialog box, click Text Editor, and then click OK.
  3. Edit the Office HTML file to remove all of the following hyperlink references that appear:
    <link rel=File-List href="./filename_files/filelist.xml">
    					

    <link rel=File-List href="./filename_files/editdata.mso">
    					

    <link rel=File-List href="./filename_files/oledata.mso">
    					

  4. On the File menu, click Save.
  5. Quit the text editor.
