I have finally mastered the art of creating a Session in TRS2006 and I don't have any problems creating routes and controlling events, triggers etc. BUT, I still don't understand how I create my own HTLM Assets so that I can give directions during my Session.

Can somebody give me a few starters on the process of creating an HTLM Asset to use with my Sessions? I can't even figure out where TRS2006 stores the HTML Assets that I have been using in my sample Sessions. Is there a .html file located somewhere in the TRS2006 directory? If so, where do I find it so I can see some examples?

I can't find any good documentation on using CCP.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. :) :)

I can understand your frustration. I haven't worked with 06 yet, but I recently went through the whole process in 04 and it took me awhile to get the hang of it.
In 04, html assets are in the World/Custom/HTML folder. All I did was create a folder for each of my html assets and a config in each folder. After that, I created a .jpg image of my instructions, inserted it into Word and saved the file in the created folder as a html file. (Note; an htm extension doesn't work, it has to be html).
It's difficult to find anything substantial about doing this. It would be nice if there was a tutorial out there somewhere on doing it. Auran's documentation on it is horrible. They must assume that we already know how to create a html file, but it was totally new to me.
Bottom line is that it worked for me. I uploaded a session for my revised Ashland Central Route yesterday, so we'll see how well it works because I'm not sure that I packaged it correctly in Content Dispatcher.

Thank's so much Nightcrawler. The link you sent me to was GREAT. Now I understand the concept and will be up and running. Thanks for taking the time to share your knowledge.

I searched the forum to find some explanation how to create an HTML asset in Content Creator Plus for my sessions in 2012 . I had some success in TRS 2004 but I am lost with 2012. Since I did not buy any release between 2004/2012, did I miss something? So far I written some HTLM pages using a HTLM Editor, but have no idea how to include those pages in the HTLM assets using the CCP.
If anyone out there can help with providing I would gratefully appreciate
