A firefighter colleague of mine has a problem that I have so far been unsuccessful in helping him to overcome. He created a website for our station using MS FrontPage. When checking the pages in both IE and Netscape we find that certain photo images (not all, just some) will show up only with IE but not Netscape. One page with a photo will appear fine in both IE and Netscape, but another, nearly identical page with a photo seems fine in IE but the same image on the same page won’t appear in Netscape.
Things that don’t seem to be the problem:
- The images were all executed with FTP because they’re ALL showing up with IE.
- In MS FrontPage, Tools >> Page Options >> Compatibility
Under “Browsers”, both IE and Netscape were selected.
- Checked to make sure the uploaded image names and file extensions are identical to what is written in the html for the webpage in FrontPage. Ex.: made sure uploaded, executed image “index_files/image001.gif” wasn’t written as “index_files/image001.GIF” in the page html (for Netscape to pick up on any difference in capitalization.)
This page successfully shows the photo image in both IE and Netscape:
This second, nearly identical page shows the photo image in IE but not Netscape:
I’ve examined the source for both pages and do find some differences, but nothing I could attribute (as in, “Aha!”) to being the cause of this problem. (for example, there were some size differences and I also discovered a misdirected button link to a wrong page).
Does anyone have any suggestions for what possibilities there might be for an image to appear in IE but not in Netscape, keeping in mind that this only occurs with some of the website images while other images on other pages of the same website successfully appear in both browsers? What is left to check in the process of elimination for this problem?
I would really appreciate any help with this frustrating situation.
