Hi,

I tried to attach the edited version of ComRef.htm, but Trac complained "Captcha Error -- Submission rejected as potential spam -- Maximum number of external links per post exceeded -- Trac thinks your submission might be Spam. To prove otherwise please provide a response to the following" but there was nothing to respond to.

What next?

c.haslam,

Please locate google's best practices for HTML, as strong tags should be lowercase NOT uppercase (that's ancient at least HTML3 standard). Also mlipok suggested the wrong file for you to edit. I will do it manually, but next time you will find the file in "docs\autoit\english\html\intro"
