      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

      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

          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

                          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.

                            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.
                            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

                              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.

                                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

                                  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.

                                      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.

                                      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

                                      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
