    After I edit my page like this
    <a href="images\stuff1.JPG" target="_blank">
    <img src="images\stuff1tn.JPG" style="border: 0px solid ; width: 92px;
    height: 44px;">
    </a>
    Then After I FTP it looks like this
    <a href="images\stuff1.JPG" target="_blank">
    I am puzzled beyond words

    If you are a Windows user (which your are) folders are separated with
    the '\' character, but on the web the character is '/'.

    Change your href's to 'images/stuff1.JPG'

    Also beware that your website is NOT hosted on a Windows server, (very
    likely) that filenames and paths are case sensitive so 'stuff1.JPG' and
    'stuff1.jpg' are not the same file...

    To edit a page implies it was one way and you changed it to
    another way. What was the before?

    BTW, why are you using the backward slash \ rather than the
    forward one /?

    3 options imo

    1 You are uploading the wrong file
    2 You dont have permission to overwrite the old file
    3 ie shows u an old page ..

    The original poster didn't say what browser he/she was using; why do
    you assume IE? Well, other than that they used a cluelessly incorrect
    syntax (backslashes instead of forward slashes) that only works in that
    crappy, nonstandard browser...

    Hehe I assumed it was IE after reading the question and guessing the OPs
    level of skill. My bet is that the OP has been uploading the wrong file
    btw :)

    But if you read carefully you'd see me name it as an option not as a
    fact. (Come to think of it .. ff has been showing some strange cache
    behaviour lately within iframes too.)

    Because they obviously do not know the difference.

    Pet peeve: "forwared slash" being referred to as "back slash".
    Arrrrgh!!!! IT IS A FORWARD SLASH!!! ARGH!

    There is a local radio show in which one ad for the show gave their web
    address as "myspace.com-BACKSLASH-radioshowname"

    ARGH!!! FORWARD SLASH!!! I would yell into the radio. Apparently others
    were yelling also, because they had a whole segment on all the email and
    calls they had received about their incorrect usage of "backslash"

    Oh, well. On thing is clear to me -- most people have no frikken idea how
    to use a computer or how a computer works. That's good for me, though, I
    guess, carrer-wise, at any rate.

    blah...

    Obiviousally I have been found out you were right JDS I did not know the
    difference but I still can't see the page. I am totally not skilled at this.
    But I really appreciate the help. BTW I am on XP with SP2 my browsers are
    IE6 and Mozilla I recently loaded Beta Defender hmmm. My html experience is
    all cutting and pasting and I don't really know how to use an editor but
    Mozilla and Word. I did teach the kids how to fish too.
    O.K. I checked the slashes and low and behold they were backwards...How..I
    do not know, but I changed them and FTP'd again I cant even see my changes
    when I check source of the page. I told a friend and he tried it and sees it
    just fine, even with the backslashes backwards, (now thats just wrong) (
    thats wacked)..I dont get it. Maybe it's an operating system thing? Please
    don't laugh but I must tell you the page address so I might get an answer
    but before you click I am an amature and trying to make a page.
    First to answer what was there before is http://drfixup.com/ronbay.html then
    I tried to make it so the .jpg's would open in seperate windows and at the
    same time I changed the background using a template which is
    http://drfixup.com/ronbay2.html and I get no pictures and cannot even see
    the code I mentioned in the original post here is screen print of what I
    see http://drfixup.com/images/wackycode.JPG I tried CTRL Refresh, I cleared
    my caches too.

    Well, I am able to see the images. However, all the images are squished
    and ugly because the spcified width and height is diffrerent from the
    actual image width and height. Just take the width and height out of your
    HTML code alltogether if you are not sure how to use it.

    You would be better off starting from scratch on this one. If the purpose
    of this page is to host images of ebay listings, then try simplifying a
    bit. Why not keep it very, very simple and just make the page a
    description of the item and then each image, witha description, scrolling
    all down the page.

    Like:

    Description....yaddayadd yadda yadda...

    [IMAGE 1]
    Description of Image 1

    [IMAGE 2]
    Description of Image 2

    [IMAGE 3]
    Description of Image 3

    etc...

    This will at least have the effect of providing a solution to your
    problem, even if ir doesn't *look* A1-professionally designed. Although
    right now your current attempt doesn't look so professional either. Don't
    take that personally -- just telling it like it is. Think of me as the
    Simon Cowell of web design.

    After you have learned what you need to from that simple exercise, learn
    a little more and get a little fancier. But don't try too much at once!

    Honestly, I don't know why people think web design and development is
    going to come super easy with no work involved (I'm not trying to imply
    that you think that is the case). I have spent many many years working
    hard to get the skillset I have. And I am not a very good *designer* by
    any stretch, mostly because I have focused on web programming vs web
    design. My point is merely that you probably don't know anything about
    brain surgery, so jump in right away by cracking open someone's skull.
    Try removing a splinter first. hmmm.... Maybe I am getting a bit off
    topic. oh, well, that's the way it goes sometimes. Like I was telling my
    friend Andrew just the other day... I said, "Andrew, you can't just jump
    right into brain surgery!" and he looked up from the cracked skull of his
    wife's cat and says to me, "well, its a whole lotta good you've done
    telling me that *now*!" Oh how we laughed! He never did get that cat
    back together quite right, and it tends to walk in circles now when it
    tries to go anywhere, but, like I said, another story and all that.

    What was the question again?

    O.K. I will set it up like that and give it a shot, sounds like it could be
    heavy to load. I'll be back, Thanks for the advice.

    Well, I guess that is testament to my disdain for 'Reality TV', I had to
    look up who Simon Cowell is!

    I changed it and I am sure I did not follow the directions but will change
    it again when I get back from stopping a dreaded roof leak. I now have a
    bunch of links but those go to the pic and it is a dead end. BTW the reason
    I am making this is because I had ten day listing on you know where BAY and
    after eight days the bidding was going great I was happy I called it sold
    then on the ninth day some type of activist group yanked it off and sent me
    a note that I was not allowed to sell this item because of naming rights. I
    WAS VEXED.
    Thanks for being patient with me.
