    Got this from an old client - does anyone have any ideas???;
    =========================
    xxx did a simple site for
    one of our customers - http://www.deluxe-uk.com and whenever he looks the pictures are shown as broken links. Whenever I look it's fine - and I everytime I am out and about I look from other's PCs as well! He is an AOL user - they suggested a couple of things and he has looked at it through IE on the AOL website.
    We have brought the pictures up out of the folder they were in so they are on the same level (just in case it helped!) as the page.
    ============================================
    All I can think is that it was produced using Microsoft Word (YUK) - is it something to do with the way AOL displays graphics???

    Thanks y'all...

    I'm using AOL 6 (UK version) and the images loaded fine.

    Has you tried clearing the cache (temporary internet files) on the AOL users system?

    AOL also uses compressed graphics but that generally only affects the way the image is displayed. You can turn off this option in AOL.

    Inside AOL, go to My AOL => Prefs => Web Graphics and untick "Use Compressed Graphics" and see if that works.

    rgds,

    After looking at the source, I bet the problem is the XML. The browser that comes with AOL is always at least 1 version behind, so it could be that it can't recognize the tags. Try creating a page with just normal HTML and see what happens.
