    Question Graphics show up in IE but not Netscape - why?

    Can someone help me with this issue? I've created an update page for a client and the graphics show up fine in IE but have broken graphic images appearing in NS.

    Here's the page: http://www.nemasurge.com/news/productphotos.html

    Any help in troubleshooting this will be much appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Cathy

    Images work fine for me in Mozilla (same as Netscape 6+ engine).

    What version of Netscape? It's possible that it has something to do with the misuse of the losrc attribute on your IMG tags. You're using it in the same way you use the alt attribute, where the losrc attribute is meant to be used in the same way as the src attribute, except as a "lead-in" until the page is done loading, then it would go back and load the actual images specified in src. Being a non-standard attribute, I would suggest removing it.

    Thank you for the tip - but, what is a "losrc attribute"? And what do I do to change it (I don't remember setting it in the first place!). Thanks,

    Take this line from your code for example:

    <td width="33%"><img border="0" src="http://www.nemasurge.com/images/products/aptgroupunit.jpg" lowsrc="APT%20Group%20Unit" alt="APT Group Unit" width="142" height="145"></td>

    Within the IMG tag you have a SRC attribute that specifies the URL of the image, then a LOSRC attribute that essentially contains the same text as the ALT attribute that follows it. You can safely remove the LOSRC attribute without affecting anything, and it should correct the problem. Once removed, the line would read...

    <td width="33%"><img border="0" src="http://www.nemasurge.com/images/products/aptgroupunit.jpg" alt="APT Group Unit" width="142" height="145"></td>

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you so much! That just did the trick for my NS 4.08 bug.
