      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.

            Hi,

            IE has a problem with png's, especially transparent png's, but it works fine with transparent gif's. Other browsers handle png's OK. Are you sure it is a gif and not a png?

            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,

                      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.

                        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

                          My Firefox 2 and IE 7 don't like by it self:
                          < a href=pic.jpg> pic< /a> either

                          but they like:
                          <img src="../icon/Computer.jpg" /> pic< /a>

                          by it self just fine!

                          does this give a clue?


                          (I used the computer jpg because it was available)

                          Regards

                          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.

                                On the last exciting episode, aired on 31/5/2007 04:18, Chris Dart
                                invited the wrath of the gods by saying:
                                > Too early in the morning for me! - should have left the 'pic </a>' off.

                                > and the real answer is it does not like the space between the opening < and the a
                                >
                                > < a href=pic.jpg> pic< /a> = not good
                                >
                                > <a href=pic.jpg> pic< /a>) = OK
                                >
                                >
                                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 <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

                                  on the Moon"></a>

                                  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
                                  best free tutorials I know of for HTML and more, http://www.w3schools.com/

                                  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

                                  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
