By "absent image" are we talking about the img frame.png in
border:thick ridge #bdbdbd;
<img src="frame.png" alt="frame"></img>
In Firefox, I can get to
but can't find a correct path for frame.png.

| yes. that was my prediction. every time i use a

| i fully admit that i am unable to use the gimp image
| map plug-in to its
| fullest, however even with my limited skills, it would
| be easy to get a
| screenshot of the page being rendered correctly and
| send all IE viewers
| to this demonstration. this is a web server
| configuration, last time i
| looked. if i were not designing this script to run
| silently without a
| display from a web server, i would be so tempted to
| make the image map
| page just to show how simple it is to make your pages
| work properly and
| look correctly in IE. perhaps this would also work in
| Netscape3 as well
| as IE5?
| that would be such a larger sample for your least
| common denominator!
| perhaps you could use your experience and predict if my
| solution would
| work in IE for me?
