On a particular PC certain parameters are being 'stripped' from the source
code.



Here is a fragment of code (as originally written and when viewed in a
browser):

<div id="content">

<a href="images/kitchen.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="
images/tNail/kitchen.jpg " width="120" height="90" border="0"
class="right"></a>

</div>





Here is the same code fragment when the source is viewed on this particular
PC:



<div id="content">

<a href="images/kitchen.jpg" target="_blank></a>

</div>





As you can see, the "img src" parameters, together with the class have been
removed. This is not due to a problem with the actual site, but only occurs
on this particular PC (and is not browser-specific, as it happens in both
I.E. and Firefox).



All the Internet setting (control panel and each respective browser) look
fine to me and now I have no idea where else to look.



This PC is running XP Home (SP2).

Hi,
As this is happening with 2 different browsers, is a security program
misconfigured? It might be a firewall, ad-blocker, WebWasher, Proxomitron,
etc. Look at settings of any programs of that type. Anything listed under
IE> Tools> "Manage add-ons" that might be blocking images or other content?

Could be isp / ip address related (if that machine differs from the others
in that respect)
eg the web server software not allowing full access to its images, for
certain ranges.

You were completely correct!



Norton's "Ad Blocker" was enabled on that particular PC. As the images were
of a standard size (120 x 90) and had a link associated with each image, it
was obviously considered to be an advert and therefore blocked. Diabling Ad
Blocking solved the problem, but I assume that someone else, somewhere in
the World, would also have this enabled, which would screw up the site. I
therefore changed the image dimensions (only in the code, not the actual
image) to 120 x 89. Now, even with Ad Blocking enabled, the images are
rendered perfectly.



Thanks for your help.



Bill
