    Regarding my recently built, very simple Web site (using CoffeeCup HTML on a PC with Windows XP) at

    It looks fine when I view the site on a PC with Internet Explorer. However, when I view the site on a Mac with Internet Explorer or Netscape, the one simple background image on my home page is entirely different from the image I inserted, or it doesn't appear at all. And, with the Mac, the photo image on another page doesn't appear...just the little red "x" does.

    In the header of the HTML page, I inserted this character encoding: <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" I also tried inserting: print "Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8/n/n";

    Nothing seems to work.

    Question: Does a Web page need special encoding in order for a variety of platforms and browsers to read and display graphics/images as they should appear? Why, when I view most other Web sites, do they look the same regardless of whether I'm on a PC or Mac?

    The reason why it APPEARS on your computer, but not on someone else's computer is this: you have made the source for the header "c:/Program Files/CoffeeCup Software/Working/bckgrnd08.jpg" this is a local source (i.e. only exists on YOUR computer) it should be hosted on your server instead; e.g.
