Image attachment problem
I have a forum subscriber from Italy posting jpegs created on his mac.

The images are successfully attached and uploaded - but are not viewable.

In IE you just get the little red 'x' box, and Netscape takes the time to say that "[the image] cannot be displayed, because it contains errors."

Any ideas?

Answering my own question.

The Mac version of Photoshop 7 embeds some extraneous data in a jpeg when using the "save as" option. Instead, use the "save for web" dialog and that information will be stripped out.

Most web browsers, including Internet Explorer and Netscape, cannot view jpegs with the extraneous (XML) information.
