If I do this, MSIE displays _all_ the images I tried ( /icons ) correct.

I even mounted that /Icons folder in my IIS and could request the gifs
without any problems.

So when _without_ JigSaw the images show up propperly you say that is a
proof that the problem is _not_ related to JigSaw ???? I don't understand
this.

OK, I have now put one of my own gifs into JigSaw's Icon folder, lauched
JigSaw and requested http://localhost:8001/Icons/wehe.gif - that worked
fine. Then came the surprise: http://localhost:8001/Icons (an auto-gnerated
index, showing all names and images as well) showed up perfectly, while
http://localhost:8001/Icons/WWW _DID_NOT (showed the names of the gifs but
was unable to display the images). That seems to be a problem with the
indexer on the WWW folder...

I'd say, the objection to using Jigsaw is still up.

cheers,
Werner
