Linked images not displaying

Threaded View

I'm observing issue with linked images not displaying in either Firefox
1.5b2 or IE6 when running on Win XP (they display fine in either browser
on W2k).

Example problem HTML is:

<a href="largepict.html" title="Blah" alt="Blah" target="_new">
<img src="images/smallpict.jpg" /></a>

For the image to display in either browser on XP I have to use the
following HTML:

<a href="largepict.html" title="Blah" alt="Blah" target="_new"></a>
<img src="images/smallpict.jpg" />

Needless to say the image is no longer linked to higher quaility image on  

What am I doing wrong. Is the target="_new" entry casuing the conflict.

I did find I can do the following:

<a href="bigphoto.jpg" title="Blah" alt="Blah" target="_new">
<img src="images/filename.jpg" /></a>

No problems here. Opens a browser window displaying the jpeg photo. But I
wish to open a html page in the browser window.

BTW no URL as this is not on a public server.

Thanks for any ideas.

Without a URL, any answer you get would be a wild guess pulled out of
thin air. Few people want to waste time with such a guessing game.

I suggest you find a public server and put up a test page. Most ISPs
give their users at least some free web space. Why not use it?

In a pinch, you can even get some free server space at yahoo/geocities,
though there are plenty of low-cost hosting services out there these
days. You can get your own space for way less than $50 a year, including
a domain name.

It's invalid markup. Didn't you check this before asking the world to
help you?

You are not telling the facts, like the URL, just your hypotheses.

You have a typo on...let me see... line 42, column 42, I think. It could
be somewhere else, too. Anyway, your markup is probably so wrong that it
  would be easiest to rewrite it from scratch.

Probably not, but it's wrong too (on two accounts: the value violates
the specifications, and the very attribute is harmful).

Do you mean you have no problem in authoring for the WWW, then? F'ups
trimmed accordingly.

Yet, if you want help, you find a way to give us the URL.
