      I had to convert a Word .doc file to display it on a site I work on. I
      saved the file as a .txt file and then used NT to convert it to html.
      The resulting file is a "disaster" but it works except that a .gif file
      that will be displayed in Firefox and Opera will not display in IE7.
      I know that there are IE problems and some ways to work around them.
      Can anyone offer some advice on how to get this .gif file to work?

      The html is the standard src="image001.gif" and that does work in
      Firefox 2.0 and Opera 9. Can anyone direct me to some place that will
      explain what I can do to make it work in IE? I believe that most of
      the visitors to the site will be using some version of IE (probably
      IE6) and I would like to fix the code so that they can see this
      graphic. This is not up on any site yet so I can't direct you to it,
      but I think this is a common problem I have not seen an answer for.
      Thanks in advance for any tips or advice. Bruce M

      You should make sure the disaster validates. That may fix the problem. Without seeing the code it s impossible to recommend anything else. Bruce Meyers

          Hi Bruce,

          I use gifs all the time in IE 7, and have never encountered this problem, I
          hope it's more than just being lucky.

          Have you tried a different, unrelated gif, to see if it's all gifs, or just
          that one? Do you have the original source file for the graphic, or a gif
          output from Word? Use the original, or a screen shot if possible.

          When you say it's a "disaster," that suggests to me problems with more than
          a gif. I have had many problems with Word files, and files saved as... from
          Word, mainly indecipherable bloat. So I always select all the text from a
          doc, copy and paste it into a text file so it loses all the Word formatting,
          and I have a fresh start with the text. In NTP I apply Modify > Document to
          HTML to do all the grunt work of converting it to HTML. Then I go through
          the entire file applying special tags like headings, bolds, lists, etc as
          needed, then adding what ever supporting graphics. This has always worked
          for me.

          As per Cary's suggestion, you can validate it here http://validator.w3.org/

          Best,
          Corl

              Isn't this a IE known bug - it can't cope with the transparency layer
              and shows the complete gif, well 'non-transparently' - as a black
              box. So convert the gif to something else that IE7 can use or use
              FireFox.

                          It is not up on the site yet. I will post the site when it is up and then expect to hear from many who will tell me how awful the page is and that I should be ashamed to put it up.
                          In this case I had to work with what I was given - not what I wanted.

                            All browsers have some capability of autocorrecting faulty code and
                            trying to show something regardless. I fullheartedly agree with Cary and
                            Corl: FIRST make sure your code is correct and validates and only then
                            adapt to browser incompatibilities should there be any.

                            Anything else is like telling your teacher "Why do you mark my spelling,
                            my mum undertands what I meant.".

                            I still don't quite undertand your problem though. If you have really

                              Because different browsers handle invalid code differently. It's likely that somewhere in IE's interpretation of the code it's getting tripped up and missing the image for one reason or another. Otherwise, there's no reason for a gif image to fail if you can see that the <img> tag is coded correctly.

                                For example, if I have a link to a pic, it won't show it. ( < a href=pic.jpg> pic< /a>)
                                It asks if I want to open a paint program.
                                If the gif or jpeg is in a html page it will go ahead and show it.
                                In other browsers it will show the pic.

                                If it's on a server it'll work also

                                Can you post some of the html around it?
                                Also the case has to be correct.

                                Hugo,

                                If it works in Firefox2 and Opera9, why would it be the code? I am embarrassed by
                                what is on this page, but most of it was created either by Word or by NT-Std in converting it from a .doc file to a .txt file and
                                then to an .html file. I do not understand most of the code and I have no idea how to "clean it up" without making it completely
                                unreadable.

                                It is not up on the site yet. I will post the site when it is up and then expect to hear from many who will tell me how awful the
                                page is and that I should be ashamed to put it up.
                                In this case I had to work with what I was given - not what I wanted.

                                I had to convert a Word .doc file to display it on a site I work on. I
                                saved the file as a .txt file and then used NT to convert it to html.
                                The resulting file is a "disaster" but it works except that a .gif file
                                that will be displayed in Firefox and Opera will not display in IE7.
                                I know that there are IE problems and some ways to work around them.
                                Can anyone offer some advice on how to get this .gif file to work?

                                The html is the standard src="image001. gif" and that does work in
                                Firefox 2.0 and Opera 9. Can anyone direct me to some place that will
                                explain what I can do to make it work in IE? I believe that most of
                                the visitors to the site will be using some version of IE (probably
                                IE6) and I would like to fix the code so that they can see this
                                graphic. This is not up on any site yet so I can't direct you to it,

                                    When using IE 7 (what I have now) when the browser tries to open a gif or jpeg, which is on my local hard drive, it won't show it.
                                    For example, if I have a link to a pic, it won't show it. ( < a href=pic.jpg> pic< /a>)
                                    It asks if I want to open a paint program.
                                    If the gif or jpeg is in a html page it will go ahead and show it.
                                    In other browsers it will show the pic.

                                    If it's on a server it'll work also

                                    Can you post some of the html around it?
                                    Also the case has to be correct.
                                    pic.GIF is not the same as pic.gif

                                    Hugo,

                                    If it works in Firefox2 and Opera9, why would it be the code? I am embarrassed by
                                    what is on this page, but most of it was created either by Word or by NT-Std in converting it from a .doc file to a .txt file and
                                    then to an .html file. I do not understand most of the code and I have no idea how to "clean it up" without making it completely
                                    unreadable.

                                    It is not up on the site yet. I will post the site when it is up and then expect to hear from many who will tell me how awful the
                                    page is and that I should be ashamed to put it up.
                                    In this case I had to work with what I was given - not what I wanted.
                                    Bruce

                                    Please show us some of the remaining HTML (after cleaning). I do not think the problem is the image, but the code. I've noticed that
                                    Word outputs some code to check if the browser is IE or not. If you delete these sections (if apparent) it ought to work...

                                    Hugo

                                    I had to convert a Word .doc file to display it on a site I work on. I
                                    saved the file as a .txt file and then used NT to convert it to html.
                                    The resulting file is a "disaster" but it works except that a .gif file
                                    that will be displayed in Firefox and Opera will not display in IE7.
                                    I know that there are IE problems and some ways to work around them.
                                    Can anyone offer some advice on how to get this .gif file to work?

                                    The html is the standard src="image001. gif" and that does work in
                                    Firefox 2.0 and Opera 9. Can anyone direct me to some place that will
                                    explain what I can do to make it work in IE? I believe that most of
                                    the visitors to the site will be using some version of IE (probably
                                    IE6) and I would like to fix the code so that they can see this
                                    graphic. This is not up on any site yet so I can't direct you to it,
                                    but I think this is a common problem I have not seen an answer for.
                                    Thanks in advance for any tips or advice. Bruce M

                                      Yes, there should NOT be an space after the "<". This can cause all
                                      sorts of problems.

                                      Also, in your previous example, you were comparing an <a href...> tag
                                      with an <img src...> tag. Well, the <a> won't display the image.

                                      Thirdly, one of your examples put the filename between quotes
                                      (recommended) while the other didn't use quotes (not recommended).

                                      Try checking your code with Tidy -- just download the latest version
                                      from http://www.paehl.com/open_source/?download=tidy.zip , unzip it and
                                      place the tidy.exe file in the Notetab folder. Then you can invoke it
                                      from Notetab to check your code.

                                        (recommended) while the other didn't use quotes (not recommended).

                                        Try checking your code with Tidy -- just download the latest version
                                        from http://www.paehl.com/open_source/?download=tidy.zip <http://www.paehl.com/open_source/?download=tidy.zip> , unzip it and
                                        place the tidy.exe file in the Notetab folder. Then you can invoke it
                                        from Notetab to check your code.

                                          Here's the markup in a HTML file of a jpg with a link to another page, it
                                          works fine in IE 5-7, and Firefox 2.0. IE is not perfect, but it gets blamed
                                          for a lot that it doesn't deserve.

                                          <a href="Ideas-Are-Free_Summary.htm" title="See how the man got on the

                                          But, if you want the jpg to display in a browser from a txt file, then I
                                          don't understand. But I do understand HTML well enough. Here is one of the

                                          When using IE 7 (what I have now) when the browser tries to open a gif or
                                          jpeg, which is on my local hard drive, it won't show it.
                                          For example, if I have a link to a pic, it won't show it. ( < a
                                          href=pic.jpg> pic< /a>)
                                          It asks if I want to open a paint program.
                                          If the gif or jpeg is in a html page it will go ahead and show it.
                                          In other browsers it will show the pic.

                                          If it's on a server it'll work also

                                          Can you post some of the html around it?
                                          Also the case has to be correct.
                                          pic.GIF is not the same as pic.gif

                                          Hugo,

                                          If it works in Firefox2 and Opera9, why would it be the code? I am
                                          embarrassed by
                                          what is on this page, but most of it was created either by Word or by NT-Std
                                          in converting it from a .doc file to a .txt file and
                                          then to an .html file. I do not understand most of the code and I have no
                                          idea how to "clean it up" without making it completely
                                          unreadable.

                                          It is not up on the site yet. I will post the site when it is up and then
                                          expect to hear from many who will tell me how awful the
                                          page is and that I should be ashamed to put it up.
                                          In this case I had to work with what I was given - not what I wanted.

                                          Please show us some of the remaining HTML (after cleaning). I do not think
                                          the problem is the image, but the code. I've noticed that
                                          Word outputs some code to check if the browser is IE or not. If you delete
                                          these sections (if apparent) it ought to work...

                                          Hugo

                                          I had to convert a Word .doc file to display it on a site I work on. I
                                          saved the file as a .txt file and then used NT to convert it to html.
                                          The resulting file is a "disaster" but it works except that a .gif file
                                          that will be displayed in Firefox and Opera will not display in IE7.
                                          I know that there are IE problems and some ways to work around them.
                                          Can anyone offer some advice on how to get this .gif file to work?

                                          The html is the standard src="image001. gif" and that does work in
                                          Firefox 2.0 and Opera 9. Can anyone direct me to some place that will
                                          explain what I can do to make it work in IE? I believe that most of
                                          the visitors to the site will be using some version of IE (probably
                                          IE6) and I would like to fix the code so that they can see this
                                          graphic. This is not up on any site yet so I can't direct you to it,
                                          but I think this is a common problem I have not seen an answer for.
                                          Thanks in advance for any tips or advice. Bruce M
