Actually I never tried it in Netscape before. I was using Internet
Explorer...So the problem was with Internet Explorer... Here is a
summary...I just tested it in Safari (web browser for the Macintosh),
Internet Explorer on the Mac and Netscape on the Mac...

1. Internet Explorer 5.2.3 Macintosh
Problem here. The contact symbols still do NOT show up on this browser,
even after your changing the code...

2. Safari Browser for the Macintosh
Yeah! Success. No problem here...they show up ;-)

3. Netscape Navigator for Macintosh
Yeah! Success. No problem here....they show up ;-)

I love Opera, but I don't have a copy of that browser on my computer at
this time...I can test Internet Explorer on Windows if you want, but I
have to start Virtual PC and will get back to you -

Val ;-)
