Hello Adam

I've seen the same problem here with IE6. Then i take a look at the
Source-code from your website and modifed it a little bit.

Try this:
in the <head>...</head> section

<style type="text/css">
a.hver {display:block; width:272px; height:179px; overflow:hidden;
a.hver {background:#fff url(FrostVillage0.gif) no-repeat;}
a.hver:hover {background:#fff url(FrostVillage.gif) no-repeat;} {display:block; width:65px; height:32px; overflow:hidden;
cursor:default;} {background:#fff url(,136,113,01-08-009-01-01-01,171,113,02-01-001-01-02-01,158,134,)
no-repeat;} {background:#fff url(contact%20me.gif) no-repeat;} {display:block; width:72px; height:34px; overflow:hidden;
cursor:default;} {background:#fff url(,115,130,02-01-001-01-01-07,146,139,02-03-004-01-01-11,161,133,01-04-001-01-03-01,122,133,)
no-repeat;} {background:#fff url(calendar.gif) no-repeat;} {display:block; width:46px; height:39px; overflow:hidden;
cursor:default;} {background:#fff url(,106,117,01-01-001-01-02-03,119,127,02-05-002-02-01-01,129,103,)
no-repeat;} {background:#fff url(email.gif) no-repeat;}

in the <body>...</body> section

<table align="center" border="1" rules="all" width="810">
      <td colspan="2">
        <a class="hver" href="index.html" style=""></a>
      <td align="center" valign="top" width="93">
        <p><a class="contact" href=""></a></p>
        <p><a class="cal" href=""></a></p>
        <p><a class="email" href=""></a></p>
      <td valign="top"><img src="welcome.jpg"></td>

On my PC [XP-Home] it works now for both (Firefox2 AND IE6) - and the
gif-animation-loop now starts always from the first frame :-D

But IE seems to make no caching of css-graphic ??? so every time i move my
mouse over one of the three smaller signs who are build with "" and then move my
mouse outside the animation, IE takes some time to reload the signwriting
from the internet. Firefox do not reload the signwriting from internet, but
displays them instantly back from cache when i move my mouse away from the
image :-)
(that is one of many reasons why i never surf with IE but i always use
