I use NT4 sp3, with netscape that's OK, but with Hotjava browser
I have the same problem that seems to happend with some internet explorer.
Some gif file, But not all gif file, does not appear correclty. 
In fact the W3C logo in the doc of jigsaw does not appear 
but the JIGSAW image appear correctly, the only diffrance I see 
with jigadmin is in the frame parameter :

- the frame for "W3C_home" has the property icon set to generic.gif and
variants set to w3c_home.gif, W3c_home.png
- the frame for "jigsaw" has the property variants set to jigsaw.gif and
icon is not set.

Hotjava browser complain when I try to go directly to the ressource
w3c_home with the URL :

	Exception: java.net.SocketException
	Unexpected end of file from server

but work ok when accessing the file itself with the URL :
