Why is it that when I post a jpeg onj a web site and access it through AOL the jpeg is displayed as a bmp. This happens nomatter which browser I use. When I try to save the graphic to file the only file type allowed is a bmp. When I print the file it prints as a jpeg but still displays as a bmp. Please help.

AOL uses an image compression system that actually converts the image before it is sent to you.  In the preferences for the AOL software you can turn off this image compression and you will stop having this problem.
