    I have just realised this gif is nt showing up for me with IE in this page It shows up fine in Ffox and seems an innocent enough .gif - anyone can tell me why? I have thumbnailed it below also (yeah, I know it is passé etc) and also added the relevant HTML code snippet to expedite an explanation....

    Code:

    Looks like you forgot to close the opening <a> tag. :)
    It should be:

    Code:
    <p>
    <a href="http://www.zen95211.zen.co.uk/holding.html">
    <img src="http://www.zen95211.zen.co.uk/gif/working.gif"></a>
    </p>
    P.S. Tags and attributes should be in lowercase, and you should consider adding an "alt" attribute to your images.
