|SOLVED -- THANK YOU!|
Thank you for your response! I've bookmarked it in case I ever have the same problem again.
And thank you very much for your offer to de-PHP the files, but there are too many of them. ;)
Yes, I'd opened the files with Notepad, and quickly saw it wouldn't be easy for me to strip out the PHP code, which is why I searched for answers and ended up on this site.
I was able to get my problem taken care of in a very low-tech way: It took a bit of doing, but finally got them to send me the original text files! So I extracted the text from the people, not the files. LOL
Bless their heart, they were trying to help -- not realizing that I needed to edit the text docs before they were ready for any kind of processing into web format....
Again, thank you for your help! And I'm very glad I found this site!
