    I have setup my stationary in html and have all my images on the web it is all working.

    I am using a group of header images and a footer image for the templates. Can I make it so the only place text or signatures can be placed is between the header and footer. At the moment you can be put text anywhere even after the footer and the signature is added on after the footer. I want nothing to be added after the foot image.

    To set the focus, insert the text [Type Here] in the template between the header and footer.

    Thankyou that works somewhat but how do I get groupd wise to insert a signature at this location as well, instead of after footer.

    There may be a fancy way to do this with HTML layers, but I don’t know of a non-trivial approach. For example, it MAY be possible to overlay two tables, the underlying one including the header/footer images, while the top table is sized to ensure text is placed within the header/footer area. There may be more advanced HTML CSS features which could also facilitate it, although I’m not sure if you could do it without overlaying layers (z-order and absolute positioning). Here’s some sample HTML that may help:

    In terms of ensuring the standard GroupWise signature is inserted in a particular position, the only way I know of to do this is to insert the same reply marker text that GroupWise uses to determine where a signature should be inserted. I think you enter a break, then ‘>>>’ (formatted using a white font so the text was invisible). GroupWise looks for this sequence when determining where to insert the signature. You’ll probably have to experiment to get this right.
