Hello PHP Masters,

Sorry to bother you but after googling into googles groups during hours
you are my last chance to find a clue to my problem. Since english is
not my natural language do not hesitate to let me know if my question
is not clear.

So Here is my problem:
I wrote a file that converts a html table into an excel file. In this
table there is a picture.
The source code is just below. if you load it with IE or FF a dialog
box appears in order to save/open the created excel file :

header("Content-Type: application/; name='excel'");
header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=exceldisplay.xls");
print "


My problem is that if in the futur the user want to open the saved
excel file he won't be able to see the pictures if his computer is not
connected to the internet network.
In fact it seems that the generated excel file still use the http
adress source
of the picture to display it.
So do you know if there is any clue to create an excel file from html
code that "keep in memory the pictures" in order to display the
pictures in any kind of situations.

Any help would be very very very appreciate.

And do not hesitate to ask if you want me to clarify my question.

I believe excel can store the pictures within the excel file itself.  I
am not quite sure on how it does that but you may want to pick apart the
excel specification when you load in an image.

And if you are using some conversion utility you may want to check
within that to see how they are handling images.
