Issues that are fixed in the hotfix package

When you have SSL links across multiple subnets, and you have a link on one page that points to a page on another subnet, FrontPage 2003 may stop responding. When you view the report, the link does not appear correctly.

For example, if there is a link to https://servername/subweb1/link.htm on https://servername/subweb2/page.htm, the Hyperlink Verification Report causes the Web site to stop responding.back to the top
