On my site www.paulric.co.uk, when you go to the My Computer page in FF the picture of the monitor does not show unless you press the refresh button. This does not happen with IE so does anyone know if it's my code, host or FF? :?

The gods pause for a moment.....

ricpamiwor,

I noticed that your image tag was outside of a p tag. In my experience, I've always put the image inside of <p> and floated it (the image) with css. For instance, on my site I have a snippet of code that looks like this:

xhtml

<p><img src="/i/cubes.jpg" alt="" class="headline" width="250" height="188" />Yes, this is the standard way to start things out. But what do we really learn about the person besides what he merely states about himself in 16px Helvetica?</p>

Then, the css does its thing

css

img.headline { float: left; border: 1px solid #C6BEB5; margin-right: 10px; margin-bottom: 2px; }

Not to felate myself in self-promotion of the site, but here is the resulting page from the above code:

I've never had a problem with floated images using this method. You could just include it into the <p> from your existing code and then apply a class to the image. Floating the image will just push it to the far left or right of the surrounding block level element. Hope this helped.
