Hello

BRIEF PROBLEM
^^^^^^^^^^^^^
any <img src> which has spaces in it, while viewing under NETSCAPE, doesn't work (ie. broken images). Under IE5 it works fine (images are shown).



PROBLEM EXPANDED (detailed explanation)
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
  I've been programming my site under windows, and therefore been testing it under MS IE5.

Everything works fine.

When i went over to browser test it under NETSCAPE 4.05, i get various errors, mainly with JAVASCRIPT. But one error that has baffled me is this.

**  any <IMG SRC="xxx"> in netscape, where the 'xxx' has SPACES in it, returns a BROKEN IMAGE (ie. it cannot find the image). Under microsoft IE, the image is displayed.

The server is IIS5.0 where the asp pages are hosted.

Any clues why please?

To get them to work, replace all of the spaces with %20 but in general it is not a good idea to have spaces at all.
