Hmmm... usually the problem is the other way around (something works in IE but not other browsers).
Are you using a WYSIWYG editor, or coding everything yourself? Sometimes WYSIWYG editors screw up things like that. I'd look at how it is linking to the images. Is it using the Windows/DOS file paths (ie. "C:\Documents\Images\picture1.jpg") or is it using proper internet paths (ie. "../images/picture1.jpg")? Also, be careful not to use spaces and certain characters in the file names. And capitalization matters too.
But like I said, usually IE will work when other browsers don't because it will compensate for certain coding mistakes without telling the programmer that the mistakes were made so they can correct them, so it's strange that Chrome is working for you instead of IE.

Thanks LO. I'm coding it myself. I might buy a package and go from there, unless you know of any free packages on line (not illegal pirate versions). It will probably be a lot simpler in the long run. I'll look at the file names and paths I'm using. I have done this before, and had no problems.
I've been toying with Web Page Maker It is trial ware, free for 15 days. I have 12 days left so I don't know what happens after that. It does put a tag on the bottom of the page, but that is easy enough to remove manually. You should find it pretty simple to make a basic page or use it just to see what code it generates for a particular need. I don't have any web experience at all and turned out a usable but very basic page in an hour or so. If it blows up after the trial period, you still have 15 days of work behind you.
You can view your page in normal, HTML or Tags mode so you can tweak your page.
Thanks, I'll take a look at that. I've moved towards using CSS and coding myself. For what I want to do, it might make life a little easier. There's a small learning curve to overcome, but there are plenty of on line resources that are useful. I've got my first CSS code working.
