Your website is indeed very informative… I would be very thankful if you could kindly clear my confusion. My website looks fine when I tested on my computer but when it is loaded at the server and viewed later using IE, some images are not displayed on the web site. I tried with both the GIF and JPG format. Before loading the pages everything is fine… is this a problem with my pages/images or the server?
