No display of certain graphics in IE7?
I'm running IE7 with all the latest updates. I developed our website using some Wordart graphics but they will not display on our desktop. They do display on the laptop and all other PCs. Is there a setting in security or soemwhere that I'm missing?

Thank You

Yes it is a security issue. You are running some ActiveX (msorun.dll) on your site to make the text slide and fade. This is one of the greatest security risks in IE. ActiveX is very powerful and can easily be abused. Under default settings IE7 blocks any ActiveX that has not been explicitly allowed by the end user.

I suggest you find another way to make your graphic. like a .gif or flash program.
Here are a couple of options for you.
GIMP - The GNU Image Manipulation Program (great graphics program too)

Got it!
Thank You for the info. Toufee is great! Now I just have to copy and paste the code into my site. Should I insert it into my my i-frame or just eliminate the i-frame and go directly to the page? Do think my i-frame with the powerpoint presentation is my running active-X ? Or is it one of the java pros from bravenet?

How do I layout my page so it displays on all size screens? I'm having problems with my mailto shapes staying put when jumping from PC to PC that have diffferent resulotion and screen size.

It shouldn't make a difference if it's in an I-frame or not. Personally I would skip the I-frame.

There is so much frontpage/microsoft only code on your site I'm not sure what is causing the active-x issue. It's one the vml objeects that's callng to run the mosrun.dll file from a users system.

This is also the issue with the mailto links. They are inside microsoft specific code. (they don't link at all in other browsers) The layout is probably set to position:aboslute while the center content is set to relative. The center content will center itself in the middle of the borwser window no matter the width, while the mailto items stay at the same pixel position. Drag the bottom right corner of your browser window smaller and larger and you will see this effect.

Also for you info, much of your layout and content is Internet Explorer specific. Standard compliant browsers display your site ignoring microsoft specific code. Download another browser to see how some of your visitors view the site. (you can run more that one browser with out any issues)

Try this website to test your website in a lot of different browsers, it will take a while though. Test your web design in different browsers - Browsershots
