  • Hello, I took a look at the Missing CD content and on the index page nearly all of the links past chapter 5 are broken still.

    Thanks for your time.

  • Hi Karl,

    Are you talking about the content on this page: http://oreilly.com/missingmanuals/cds...?

    I'm just not finding a problem with the links on this page in any of the chapters, and our web producers have tested all of them as well. Can you be more specific about what happens when you click a link? What device and operating system are you using?

  • Hi Karl,

    If you're having trouble downloading the Zip file, I can find another way to send it to you, perhaps by Dropbox.

    As for the link that says "webpage not found," please copy and paste the link so I'll know for sure which link is broken.

  • Oh, I see. You're talking about the links on the try-out site at http://prosetech.com/html5/. I will let the author know about the errors.

    I apologize for the problem.

  • Karl,

    The index.html file in the Zip folder is incorrect. You can open each file directly from the folder instead of using the index page.

    The author is going to remove the index.html, links.html, and styles.css files from the Zip folder, since they seem to be causing more confusion for readers.

    To access clickable links, use the page online at http://prosetech.com/html5/.

    Sorry not to have a better solution.
