I am having problems displaying images in Internet Explorer 7 (IE7). This code 
works when I click on the ?Server debug? button in Dreamweaver 8/ Coldfusion MX 
7.0.2 using the default web browser IE7, but when I run the program code using 
?Preview in IExplorer 7.0? the images in the body of the code do not display.

 Background: My system was written in Dreamweaver MX 2004 using the Coldfusion 
MX 6 that came with the product and using the Windows XP default web browser 
Internet Explorer 6. Earlier this year my system was upgraded to Internet 
Explorer 7 which, I believe, requires me to use ?strict? protocol. To comply 
and keep my system up to date I bought Dreamweaver 8 and started using the 
Coldfusion MX 7 that came with the product, then I upgraded to Coldfusion MX 
7.0.2. I have just started converting some of my code when I noticed the 
problem with ?Server debug? behaving differently to ?Preview in IExplorer 7.0?.

 I have gone into Coldfusion Administrator / Sandbox Security / Defined 
Directory Permissions / Secured Files and Directories and created an entry for 
directory ?C:\-? with read, write, execute and delete permission in the hope 
that it would shed some light on the problem but the problem still exists.

 I have created a little program (detailed below) that illustrates my problem. 
In ?Server debug? everything works. There is a repeating background image 
(Fashion.gif), the ?aaa? displays, and underneath that the ?Ximage? picture 
displays with 3 pixel border and with the alt text ?x?, and underneath that the 
?Yimage? displays with the 5 pixel border and with the alt text ?y?. In 
?Preview in IExplorer 7.0? the repeating background image (Fashion.gif) 
displays, and the ?aaa? displays, and underneath that, within the 3 pixel 
border, there is a small box with the triangle, square and circle with the alt 
text ?x?, and underneath that, within the five pixel border, there is a small 
box with a red ?x? with the alt text ?y?.

 <title>Untitled Document</title>
 <script type="text/javascript">
 function SetBackgroundImage() { = "url(C:/Fashion.gif)";
   document.getElementById("Yimage").src = 

 <body onload="SetBackgroundImage()">
 <br />
 <img border="3" id="Ximage"  alt="x" src="C:/Fashion.gif" />
 <br />
 <img border="5" id="Yimage"  alt="y" src="" />

 I have exhausted all avenues of attack on this problem. Can someone please 
help me!?
