          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,
          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

                    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.

                        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

                          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

                            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.

                                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.

                                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
