OS 10.3.8 and Safari-

The Documentation Tips & Tricks (and similar) fail to produce graphic output. Only "missing graphic" icons (box with question mark) are shown after each item. Clicking on the box produces the code for the item.

It's the same for me here (OS X 10.3.8) using Safari or Mac IE. Only Firefox shows the images. It appears to be related to the fact that the source for the web page:

has image tags like the following:

<img align="center" valign="center" border="0" src="lily-931951662" alt="[image of music]">

The file lily-931951662.png exists, and is the image as expected. The file lily-931951662 (no extension) also exists, but appears to be a short text file saying merely "image of music". This is the result when trying to fetch the file lily-931951662 using wget, IE or Safari.

I'm not quite sure why or how Firefox shows the images, but this would appear to be a bug in the website, rather than in Safari.

[the 2.4 Tips and Tricks page displays fine in all browsers]



Thank you for confirming my observations.

Camino displays the page correctly in addition to Firefox; perhaps the Mozilla-based browsers are more tolerant of deviations from html standards. I ran the page through an html checker and it found quite a few errors.
