I have just developed my first website, my head is spinning, but I think all is well/rectified and tested (apart from some minor niggles that can be left for now). Apart from one major thing;
My header on each page consists of two images and one banner image - a gif file downloaded from fireworks and containing only text ("Welcome to the website of the Hertford Carnival ..."). All three images are visible to me on my PC (in multiple browsers, screen sizes, and both in the local and remote version) ... Although he can see all other images, the text banner is not visible to at least one other person.
(I did text in a GIF as putting text directly in the header meant it went everywhere).
I realise it is a non web-space font; I thought a banner would get round that, but perhaps not?
I'm sure it not being visible is something very obvious ... But what?
I've searched everywhere in help etc, but can't find an explanation.
Looks fine here.
And yes, if the text is in a graphic, no need to worry about whether others can see it or not - as long as the graphic shows up, your text will show up (as it's in the graphic).
If the person isn't seing a GIF, maybe export the image as a JPEG and use a JPEG image instead? Just make sure to make the background of your JPEG match the yellow of your header area. I have no idea why they wouldn't be able to see a GIF though...
I hope that I did understand your concern in the correct way. Your website in my IE8 looks like this:
I've used your code, changed it a little bit and got this view:
Here, the corresponding source code:
<div class="header"><img src="pictures/logo.gif" alt="Hertford Carnival logo" width="150" height="124" hspace="10" vspace="40" /><img src="pictures/banner.gif" alt="welcome to Hertford Carnival website. celebrating a festival of nations on Sunday 24 June 2012" width="570" height="170" vspace="25" border="0" /><img src="pictures/wiki_220px-Hertford_Castle.gif" alt="h" width="180" height="144" hspace="10" vspace="30" /></div>
I could "live" with it.
Only the images in my statement are black and white!
Hello Hans, I thought I had rectified the 'header' problem (it should be on one line), but obviously not. What size monitor etc are you viewing in?

ok in Firefox, always as before in IE8. Sorry, I'm in hurry at the moment, but I remember there are some commands you can use in DW so that the view is correct in IE too.
On the other hand, you should/could try testing my proposal from above.
