that is due to the fact that BMP format is Microsoft specified and since IE is tightly integrated with Win* systems, IE can show you the image while NS cant.

However a gif file *should* be shown in Netscape, unless the appropriate settings are missing from your NS browser.

Check Edit->Preference->application->Navigator

under Description check if you have something called as GIF Image.

by itself NS cant show BMP files. However there are 3rd party plugins for NS that allow you to view BMP's amongst other formats.

There is a free download @ http://www.csu-software-solutions.com/Plugins150.html
