    *chuckle* - I hadn't noticed that thread yet when I read this one, so I did not know what Chris was after with this and just commented on what was happening.

    Maybe I can seduce you not to use IE to test links, and especially not image links? It can't be trusted to adhere to Internet standards.

    Marjolein,

    Chris knows that. I accidentally used backslashes in an IE URL to bring up a picture. When the picture displayed, I pasted the same URL in [img] tags in another thread and it did not work. Chris posted in the test forum to show me what I did wrong.

    Chris, backslashes are DOS/Windows file system only. URLs on the Internet use forward slashes only. A reference in HTML with backslashes might refer to a file system path on your own computer but will never work for anyone else on the internet - unless they happen to have a file with the exact same file path on their own computer.

    A BBcode img "tag" assumes an Internet path, so (at least in most implementations of BBCode, if not all) any local file system path won't be interpreted as an internet URL: it needs to refer to something the browser can retrieve, after all.
