Just a note - when adding HTML to a cache page, those of us with Cachemate end up having to decrypt the pages when viewing it on our PDA.

 

Out in the field it can sometimes cause problems when trying to read the instructions. :P

 

I've almost given up on a cache 'cause the < and the > mix in with the rest. Luckily I use HTML at work so I can figure it out.

Not a problem with adding HTML to the cache page but a problem with adding bad HTML and non standard characters to the page. All cache pages are HTML encoded but if it doesn't get interpreted correctly by the program that generates GPX files from the cache page and doesn't get weeded out by Cachemate it will finish up on your PDA. I think using MS Word as the HTML editor can be one of the causes. Keeping it simple and using a standard HTML editor and there shouldn't be any problems.

 

Since switching to using Cachemate with GSAK and going paperless the only problem I've had is with a cache that required having a picture in order to do it.

 

BTW the new GSAK 4.0 is outstanding - especially the ability to print. I skim through the caches I plan to do in GSAK and look for any that might be a problem on the PDA and print those out ahead of time.
