I've constructed a website for my son's Boy Scout troop. The site is at www.clarksgreen251.com
. I authored the site using MS Word 2000. Most people report that the website looks great and works fine. But on a few computers some of the graphics on the web home page will not download. The web page appears with placeholders where the graphics should be. The missing graphics are Scout logos with very small file size. They are GIF files. But other GIF files on other pages of the site download with the page fine. I used my home computer with a DSL connection to build and upload the site.
Where I work we have a Dell Pentium III 500 Mhz running Windows 98 and IE 5 with a dial-up internet connection. The Dell computer at work will not display the problem graphics on the troop website. Whether I log on to the internet via AOL or Epix(my local ISP), the result is the same. The same graphics will not appear on the web page with either service. When I access the "webfolder" on the website host server from the same Dell computer, I can download the wayward graphics files independently of the web page, and view the logos in IE5 one at a time without the web page.
I've used AOL and other ISPs from other computers with dial-up connections and they download the same web page just fine with the graphics where they should be.
What might be the problem with my wayward web graphics, and how can I fix it?
