I am trying to use the Create Web Page option in PAF5.1 to generate a detailed web site with detailed source references and extensive notes.

PAF5.1 does most, but not quite all of the job, at least not as well as I would like.

The following specific problems have arisen:
1. Source citation for a Will. This does not carry through to the web site, although the program documentation seems to indicated that it should. The existence of the Will is mentioned on the website but the source citation (in this case the text of the Will itself) does not show.

2. Multiple references to the same source for one individual. In a situation where the source has two records for an individual (e.g. one for the birth and another for the death) the detailed part of the source citation (file number/film number etc) does not get carried through to the web site for the second citation.

3. Notes regarding a marriage. Information in the notes field regarding a marriage does not get carried through to the web site.

If anyone has any ideas how to fix or work around these issues I would really appreciate the advice.

Thanks in advance.
