Problems with IE6 displaying images, reading CSS.

P: n/a
Hi,

This is my first post and I may be asking a question that's got a very
simple explanation.
I hope.

I'm building a website and testing it goes fine on Netscape and
Mozilla.
Pixel perfect.

IE6 however, will not display the images (all are .gif or .jpg) nor
read the CSS formatting. It shows Times New Roman instead of Arial.

I used Dreamweaver, Notepad and Photoshop on a PC with ME as OS.
The CSS file sits in a css folder, the graphics in a folder called
"grafix".
The HTML pages and the two folders are all in a single folder.
AS I said, N & M read these files perfectly, why can't IE?

IE6 will display the images if I do File. Open but not on the webpage.
All it shows is rectangles with a red x.
It does read the ALT text however.

I'd like to keep the HTML as clean as possible and I don't want to use
any unnecessary code that is not W3C standard.

Help!

Michel

No URL all is on C drive. tried relative and absolute linnks, zilch
it don't work.
Mix of relative and abs works OK in Mozilla, nothing works with IE

IE can read Alt text, but not display image unless I open images all
by themselves not as part of webpage.

Do your images have the extension jpg? i.e. picture1.jpg,
picture2.jpg?
Asking this cause it sounds like a very similar problem I
just read about in another newsgroup.
Are the names of the images in the same case (lower or
upper) as the urls?
Can you paste some code here?
