    I don't believe this can be an issue in Windows XP. Perhaps you will ask
    your web host for assistance.

    The difference between a vest and a bicycle is simple: a vest doesn't have
    sleeves.

    Not an issue with Windows XP, the topic of THIS newsgroup.

    So why can't you simply rename the home/first page for the sub-site (the
    one pointed to by links from your main site) and then slide in a "Down
    for maintenance" web page that has the same name as the original home
    page?

    domain/index.html
    has pointers to
    subdomain/index.html or domain/subsitepath/index.html

    As to what YOU think defines a "sub-site" has yet to be defined so
    someone ELSE knows. If the above were true, you would simply:

    - Create a new web page to be the "maintenance" placeholder web page:
    [sub]domain[/<subsitepath]/maintindex.html
    - Slide out the old subsite's main page and slide in the maint page:
    rename [sub]domain[/subsitepath]/index.html oldindex.html
    rename [sub]domain[/subsitepath]/maintindex.html index.html

    Users that click on links from your main site to get at your sub-site
    would end up getting the newly slid in maintenance web page. When you
    were done with your maintenance, just rename these files back.

    There may be problems with users that cache your web pages as they may
    have an old copy of your original sub-site's main web page. These are
    questions that are properly addressed in a web or HTML development
    newsgroup, not here.
