I had it bookmarked with Gallery1 and got 502 notice. Changed it to Gallery4, still got 502 notice. I see I'm in good company.

Well, we're making progress. Today when I clicked on the link you say works, the page did open, instantaneously. However, not all the pictures download, including the most recent. The frame and title shows, but the frame is blank with the little red x in it. This is on all 4 pages. Clicking the "reload" button doesn't help. Isn't there some maori ceremony for exorcising electronic demons?

OK-- so what OS --(Operating system) are you using? (Windows? Mac OS? Unix? Linex? do you know?
and what browser? Netscape? which version? IE? AOL's browser? Spider? again, do you know?

AOL in its many forms does not support pictures as well as Netscape or IE (MS internet Explorer.) and Netscape and IE handle some HTML and XML differently --

any of you who have replies to your posts mailed to you have seen HTML-- on the board we use square brackets like {b} and {/b} for bold-- but when it is mailed to you it shows up as <font =b> or in the case of colors
<font color=white> the < > are HTML brackets..
HTML==Hyper Text Markup Language and XML is eXtended Markup Language

it is unfortunate-- when HTML was first divised-- it worked almost everywhere and the same everywhere-- but now..
It is a real pain to write a page that works in every browser-- and since Max is using a "web page" software generator --arachnophilia 4.0 it is even more difficult for him to make the pages "multi browser accessable..It would be worse if he use MS Front Page..

Web page generators are programs that allow you to "write" a page -- similar to creating a page on Word or Word Perfect-- and the soft ware "translates" all the details into an ML language. it makes it easy to creat a page-- but by relying on the software to create solutions, you often don't get Perfect ones--

Ok Max-- what browser do you use? we should try to use the same--and then we are more likely to see what you see..

Well, I've tried IE, Netscape, Opera, Lynx, Links, w3m, Konqueror, Galeon, Mosaic, Mozilla, Amaya, and this new Pocket Rocket dealy, and I still don't see caradea's picture!!!

I use WIN98 and MSIE. I can use Netscape.

edit after posting
I just tried going to the site with Netscape and it worked fine -- opened immediately and promptly downloaded all pics.

even AoL (ha!) doesn't reveal her secret(s). [although there is still that nice shot of mav's fag/tag ends]
