What's in this package
Included in this pack is a selection of some very useful Web Accessories for Internet Explorer 5. Most of these are activated by "right-clicking" on an appropriate item in the browser and choosing the associated command. For example, if you want to use the Text Highlighter, select some text with the cursor, then right-click on the selected text and choose "Highlight" from the list of commands. Others such as the Image Toggler and Quick Search are located in the links bar.
Here's a list of what's included:

This Web Accessory lets you reach the search engines of your choice faster than ever. For example, if you type "av ActiveX" in the Address bar, Internet Explorer startsa search using Alta Vista on the keyword "ActiveX." To activate Quick Search, click Quick Search on the Links bar, and then click Save.

Now it's easy to find out what the size of graphics are and how long they could take to download at various connection speeds. This tool also displays a window containing all the images on a Web page in a separate window and displays the file size and the size in pixels. This is a must have for Web Developers.
Note The Image List works only with Windows 95 and Windows 98.
Connection Manager Administration Kit (CMAK)
CMAK.EXE is a self-extracting file
The information provided in this folder is to be used in conjuction with the scenarios and planning information contained in the IEAK Resource Kit in "Chapter 14: Customizing Connection Management Settings." These scenarios and samples are intended to facilitate understanding and development of an initial Connection Manager service profile. The Connection Manager Administration Kit is included in the Internet Explorer Administration Kit.
SAMPLE SERVICE PROFILES:
To open a sample profile, first copy it to the CMAK folder, and then open it in CMAK. For example, for scenario 1:
Copy the LocalISP folder to
Start the Connection Manager Administration Kit.
In the Service Profile Source dialog box, click Edit this existing profile, and then select LocalISP.
Clicking Next to advance to the other dialog boxes will enable you to see how the different options in CMAK are specified for the sample scenario.
Important These samples are for demonstration and learning purposes only. They are not to be reproduced or distributed. The service profiles are provided on an "as-is" basis, and no support is provided for them. In order to see the Connection Manager UI, you can install each of the sample service profiles on your computer by running the .exe file located in each folder, and then running the installed program. However, because these sample service profiles do not contain valid access numbers or server addresses, you cannot connect using these samples.
CMAK PLANNING WORKSHEETS:
The planning worksheet in the Planning Worksheet folder has the same content as the worksheet found at the end of the "Phase one: Planning" section of the CMAK Guide (CMAK Help). It is provided here in .htm format only as a convenient way to access and print the worksheet. It is provided on an "as-is" basis, and no support is provided for it.
