Exporting as web page problem

Exporting as web page problem

Exporting as web page problem

Mathcad exports web pages so they are only viewable or usable on a Microsoft computer. Formulas and graphs are exported as images in a sub directory.   To access the images Math uses path=.\filename/image.png.  Notice the .\ were it should be ./ as used by most servers. Does anybody know of a way to fix this?  I have looked in the preferences and did see anything.  I can do it with an editor but it is a pain.

RE: Exporting as web page problem

Why not simply open up the file that was saved and resave as a web archive .mht file, which has everything within it?

RE: Exporting as web page problem

I looked up .mht and even create one as you suggested.  The .mht file source still has the path specified wrong.  It didn't fix anything.  Using .mht files will not help when Apple and Linux user try to read the web page.

What I do now is ask Mathcad to view the html files in the browser.  I then ask to view the source and use notepad to replace .\ with ./

Those that I have talked to about this think this is a basic flaw in Mathcad's html generator.  MSIE has no problem opening the file if the path starts with ./ so why use .\?
