Hi There,
On this new shop I am creating here:

you can see in FF and IE that everything is showing ok, however when you look at it in Safari, there are missing image links...why don't the images show in Safari...what is missing here?

I don' t usually have problems with Safari!

Hi Snowball,
There seems to be some missing images but FF shows their alternate text in some cases.
For example the submit button for the search is actually broken being at "http://store-0905b.mybigcommerce.com/templates/__custom/images/purple/Search.gif" FF shows Submit Query instead when an image button is broken, while Safari shows the broken image

While for RSS before the title "New & exciting" , the image points to this "http://store-0905b.mybigcommerce.com/templates/__custom/images/RSS.gif" which also is a broken link but again Safari is just showing the alt="RSS"  text

Try checking the images and their url and see if they do exist or not, there seems to be nothing wrong with Safari in particular, it just acts in a different way for missing images
