The 56k image should load. It doesn't have to be 69k just smaller. I just try and send it and if it too big I step on it and make it smaller. I used to have a version of Paintshop Pro that easily changed size and it gave the file size as a result. I'm not to PC literate so I just try and attach it to an email to myself to see what size it is.

Recognizing that there certainly are limitations to the MB CD manuals, I do have one question.

Because the web or html interface to the MB CD is so clunky at finding the particular manual sections one needs, I prefer just to go to the pdf files directly. But, as there are hundreds of pdf files on the CD, a reference that lists the manual sections by topic would be highly useful. (The pdf files seem to be named using the manual section number.)

At least for the W124, this information is not on the CD. Does anyone know of a complete index, preferably electronic, of all the manual section numbers and their topics? I've been slowly working towards constructing one, but it's highly tedious and requires opening each pdf fileto see what its topic is.
