Hi,

I built this website (newbie at this) using dw mx which appears fine when I preview it locally but when browse it using IE or Netscape one of the images does not display. In fact, when I view the downloaded html the image tag is missing (the tag is there in dw and when I ftp to the server to look at the html).

Thanks in advance,
Tim

Hi Tim,

did you check your image path whether it's published in the right way?
Can you give a short piece of code from the original dw file where you coded the image and the same piece of code from the source view in IE?

Tim, you might also want to check that the images are all lower case filenames to match the lower case code in your html file. Any missmatch between upper/lower case can cause a problem, particularly on a unix server. Also, some ftp programs may be set to force lower case file uploads - when the code you are using requires all caps or upper/lower case. I personally prefer to keep image filenames and code lower case to begin with.

So Tim,

difference between your code in dw and the source code from IE it seems that following line is different

<td width="60"><img src="images/italianframe900x600_r2_c5.jpg" width="60" height="480"></td>

now, when I load the page in IE I can see the image correct in the browser and the line <td width="60"><img src="images/italianframe900x600_r2_c5.jpg" width="60" height="480"></td> is present in the source code.

So, try to load the page on another computer and verify of the problem is still present. If not, check your browser settings and zone settings.

Regards,

Karl

It may not be relevant, but if I experience any strange problems of this sort I always view the site with Opera and hit F5. This seems to force a proper refresh - other browsers will normally then view the page correctly too.

I don't believe there is a widespread problem but rather a server fault (with respect to caching) somewhere near me - maybe there is a similar problem near you.

You're running the evil Norton Internet Security, aren't you? The above dimensions are a standard advertizing size, and NIS blocks them.
