Hello

I believe I've posted a browser compatibility thread on the site and I saw
other similar threads and replies.

My problem now with my site is that it appears well in IE and nothing in
Firefox.

Now, I've already done the validation and it passed (Transitional) the CSS &
HTML validation.

Also, when I first attempted to open the site in Firefox, none of the images
appeared but what did appear was some of the text and spacers for the images.
And they appeared static as if the browser didn't read the stylesheet where
the positioning is specified.

So I shortened the stylesheet address from
href="C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Desktop\JR Studios Website (Final)\
default.css" to href="default.css"
and the positioning worked...?...

However, there still aren't any images being shown. Could it be a problem
with the address of the <img> tags where the location is listed as "C:\Docs.
and Sets\.......whatever.jpg"...? Or what do you think it could be?

What site?

Oh, I see. You're accessing Usenet (which has nothing do do with the web)
via a web site that usurps its groups and messages and presents them with
a clunky interface.

I just tried that. I changed everything from "\" to "/" and it still didn;t
work.

What I have discovered is that the problem has everthing to do with the <img>.
Everything else works...as I continue to draw up basic examples....

My tables are working, text is working...everything but the images.

URL? But then again, with you pointing your image elements to your C drive I
don't expect one too soon :)

I'm working on that. I should have a URL tomorrow. If you want you can check
back once I post it. Your suggestion would be much appreciated. Thanks

Gazing into my crystal ball I observed "LayneMitch via WebmasterKB.com"

If the image is in the same folder as the HTML document, then all that is
needed is src="myimage.jpg". If it's in another folder, say images, then
it could be src="images/myimage.jpg", if the images folder is one below
where the HTML document is.

FYI, this is not a site, it's Usenet. You're just posting through some
klunky webified version of it.

href="C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Desktop\JR Studios Website (Final)\
default.css"

Besides the fact that your slashes are backwards, you're using an
absolute URI to a file on your local drive. The syntax is different.
Those spaces should be escaped, as well.
href="file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/..."

You won't be able to use a file reference online, of course, so you are
better off using relative URLs instead of file:// URIs. See Adrienne's post.

Hey,

Thanks a lot. I've solved the problem. I've downloaded a server program and
just used relative URL's instead of absolute as you all suggested. Thanks.
