Image not appearing via Instant Web Publishing

I just saved a database on a web werver (FM8 Advanced).  I can access the database remotely via FM8 Pro and the image in the header of the layout displays OK.  If I access the same database via a browser and iwp, I get the little red x.  Everything else looks ok.

Any ideas?

Just a thought; make sure the path to the image file is relative. Make sure the images are stored in a folder one level up or one level deeper relative to the folder where the database file is. And consider to paste the images right into a container field, not linking to it. This works if the image is not being changed or added by the user.

For whatever reason, it didn't seem to like the image as a jpeg.  I changed it to a .png file and it worked fine.
I thought jpeg was pretty universal on the web.

thanks rogier, I even did not remember I wrote that!
it should work with jpegs unless you use a marginal compression which is not browser compatible or if the image is CMYK (not supported by PNG)
can you provide an example of yr jpg image?
