Can someone figure out why my animated gif's are not ''animating' ? Your help is MOST appreciated :-)

I'm trying to create an eBay ad. So far, I've got the page the way I
want it. However, the few animated gif's I have on the page display
but are no longer animated.

I can get it to work in FrontPage and 'Preview in Browser'. However,
When I enter the URL or when I 'select all' html and paste it into the
'add your own html' box in ebay, the gif's don't animate.

If anyone would take the time to scan my 'index.htm' and let me know
what I did wrong to get the animated gif's to freeze, I would be very
thankful.

Thanks.

[The following images are 'supposed to be' animated:
feuer012.gif; fireworks_1.gif; Fireworks_2.gif; flag.gif;
leftspot.gif; rightspot.gif & startile2.gif.]

The location of the index.htm file and all associated images is:

'index' page: index.htm )

The problem is at your end - the GIFs are annimated in my browser.
However, I can easily reconfigure my browser so they don't animate
at all, or only loop once. Maybe you should concentrate on other things:
- You should get rid of the annoying startile background.
- You should fix the webpage so the "Including 32 patch cords
and Instruction Manual" isn't obscured by the text above it,
which it is in my browser(Mozilla).
- You might want to start by getting rid of some of the 185 errors
reported by the w3C Validator ;-)

WOW! 183 errors???

I appreciate the input. As my first webpage, I guess it's easy to get
'carried away' with 'glitter'. It's nice to get a neutral opinion.

I'm not familiar with w3CValidator. But I'll look it up in Google and
see what that's all about.

All I can 'assume' regarding the animated gif's not working on my end
is either Zone Alarm is getting in the way or my browser has some
setting 'tucked well out of sight' that I can't find.

Thanks again for the input ...

I'll keep working at it :-)

One of the best things you can do is to stop using Frontpage,
at least until you learn about HTML. Frontpage doesn't produce
valid HTML, but apparently, in some versions, if you know what
you are doing, you can take a valid HTML file and edit it with
Frontpage without 'screwing it up'.
