Mac users not able to "see" jpeg graphic

By cmaxson ·
Why can't some Mac users see the menu bars (which are jpeg images) on the web site I manage? Many Mac users with machines of very recent origin as well as older machines, report not being able to see the menu on the front page of our website and thus are unable to navigate the site. Has anyone else experienced this problem or heard of it? If so, how is it solved? If you need to see the page and look at the source code, the URL is:
www.grand-canyon.edu

Thanks in advance for any input youcan give me.

Well, i don't know too much about how Mac's work. but here's a possibity. Can they see any of your jpg's??? if not, then it might be this. in your code you have the picture being shown like this "<img src="gfx/flame.jpg" align=right>" maybe mac's would read it if it said this "<img src="http://www.grand-canyon.edu/gfx/flame.jpg" align=right>". try that.

I own a Mac and I can see all the graphics just fine. Maybe some of your Mac users are using a early browser. Or maybe the way you compressed it. I would go to Adobe's image compression site: http://webservices.adobe.com/optimize/main.html and compress all of them again in JPEG or GIF format.

Thanks, I did that. We'll see if it has any effect on other Mac users.

I think that your problem is that your tags are not closed (such as </td&gt. Mac browsers are not as laidback about that kind of stuff like Windows browsers are. It also seems that you are nesting tables. Earlier Netscape browsers had trouble displaying them. Try to use just one big table or break the content into two or three smaller one. If you need more help fell free to post.

You have a table tag after your image and first line of text, the correct way would be to put the table tag before the first line or after the last line of text. Also you have 3 center tags but 4 end tags, if all are centered use just one center pair.
You do not have any <tr> or <td> tags in your first table. This can cause some browsers problems. There are also numerous nesting errors, ie. closed table before font. This can also cause browser problems.
If you dont have a validator Homesite and ColdFusion Studio have very good ones.
