I'm flummoxed. I've triple-checked everything and still no luck. Many 
thanks for your efforts though. At least I now know that it _should_ work.

I wonder whether this is a clue: as the document loads, the status line 
fleetingly reports that it's opening an image. There's no image reference 
in the doc of course. 

Whatever ... I'll try reinstalling IE in case something's corrupted.

Thanks again for your help.
