      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

        Lotta,
        No, I can't today. It may be up soon. I write the pages but someone else has to use the FTP to put them up. I am actually embarrassed to have people look at this page, but I
        was sent a file written in Word and had to convert it so it could be seen at the site. I don't understand most of the code that was created by Word and then by NT-Std in converting it.
        I will post the URL when it is up.

          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.

            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
            done this

            > converting it from a .doc file to a .txt file

            it ought to have been pure text without any markup. In that case it may
            well look bland and boring, but there is no reason for your:

            > I do not understand most of the code and I have no idea

            There simply can't and won't be any code for you to understand in the
            first place.

              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.
                pic.GIF is not the same as pic.gif

                    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.

                    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.

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

                          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
