Logo size tripped Norton <img> stripping :(

Hi Folks,

I think the size (pixel dimensions)  of the validation img is one that
Symantec Norton firewall/anti-virus now thinks is an advert  banner and so
it strips the <img> tags when the page comes into the PC (so the page looks
fine, but where'd the <img> go?).

Just mention this, in case anyone wants to do what needs to be done to make
the source image a different size (sorry - I have not idea who to talk to).

PLUS, I am guessing, that you folks know this already and changing the img
to suit this seasons fashion in firewall rules is probable not a popular
move, so the img is staying this size and it's up to the designer to grab
the img and mod it slightly so its size no longer triggers the firewall.

Cheers, hope this has not been a waste of your time reading it, sorry if it
has. Btw, I LOVE that this validation service exists, SUCH an important

Alan Bristow.
