A reader writes, presenting a curious puzzle:
“I am currntly enrolled in a web design class using your book, Creating Cool Web Sites. I have recently install Office 2003 and seem to have lost my notepad. How can I get it back?”
That’s most weird. Have you checked the standard path to NotePad on your system?
Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> NotePad
If you aren’t finding the application there, try using
Start -> Search -> All Files and Folders
and type in “notepad” to see where it’s been hidden.
Then create an alias and drop it onto your desktop.

Notepad usually resides in Windows\system32\ [XP] or Windows\
