Yes. That's your best bet: to copy the code bit by bit and re-create the page.

You can actually do it by the whole page and it's certainly within your capability and experience: (apologies I wasn't on the ball)

Copy the whole page of code. identify the code that is set aside for the page or style setting and then the remainder paste into an HTML widget.

Advantages: Fast
Disadvantages: I don't think that you would be able subsequently to use the original widgets for modifying the additions; only by manipulating the base HTML. (My experience only)

Hi Gop, No problem, I thank you for your help always. Decided first to try all code, it copies the whole thing great, but if wishing to change can't get into it. Therefore decided to do the whole thing bit by bit. Has taken all morning, (It just had to be the page with the largest amount of text and links of all pages).
thks again.

PS. Hve actually learned a huge lesson here.Not just remember the 'save as', but Stefan mistakenly uploaded page and took off again to test a page, as I said I was having problems saving. So I then had to go and password all of the pages (as when he had tested he had uploaded everything), and had to amend all old pages which I had altered due to new site being done and finally re-uploaded everything. But... if he had not done that mistake, then I would not have been able to 'rescue' as I have done. - So now, thank you Stefan.
Whew, what a performance!

Yes.

You need to remove all the original style settings before you paste into an HTML widget otherwise it will cause the problem mentioned.
