I need to check for internet connection without using JavaScript. Can it be done in Flash and HTML?
What I had initially thought was I will set a background picture of an HTML table column and display an embedded picture and then foreground picture can be set to some picture on the server. If the foreground picture was not found then display a message that you are not connected to the internet.
However, this approach is not correct becoz if the foreground picture is not found then the FileNotFound picture is displayed and this is unacceptable.
Please suggest some solution, JavaScript will not do for my client.

I will try to explain what I m trying to ask. A mail would be sent to a client. The client will download this mail on some mailing client like MS Outlook or Eudora. The first page of the mail would check if there is an internet connection. If the connection is found then it would get the image from a server. This page can change or can be customized.
Is there a way for getting this implemented.
