Re: Graphics not working

I prefer using netscape to download html.
IE is good for using a site as a local refrence when offline.
But IE modifies the code slighty and puts in a comment that it was saved from url: *******.com

I use Netscape when I want to edit and upload at a later time.

I never uploaded an IE file that was saved to my computer....
I never did that because IE will replace within the Href with file:\\
and you have to re-edit the whole document all over again.

Stick with Netscape when editing and use IE for refrence.

>>Netscape just takes the html.....

>>Thanks for your reply Brian. I think I was using IE when I copied the html. I was using AOL and I think they use IE. Could you tell me, if I edit the html and upload it to the same site I copied it from, will the graphics work then?

>>>I copied the html from web site: to my site ant to do some editing for their site, but the graphics do not work on my site. Can you tell me why? What do I have to do to make the graphics work? Please respond by email. Thanks, Bob Stewart
