    using Adobe ImageReady files in FrontPage

    I recently learned how to make buttons and banners using Adobe Photoshop and ImageReady. However, since ImageReady saves the object as an html page I can't figure out how to incorporate them into my web using FrontPage.

    I've tried include page and copying the html code with no luck.

    Yes, they are animated graphics. I created a PhotoShop picture (.psd) then imported into ImageReady. I then added animation commands. ImageReady saves the animated graphic as a .html file. The animated graphic works fine when I open the .html file, but when I try to include it in another .html page using FrontPage it doesn't work.

    At a guess it may not be a self-contained animation (like a .gif) and could be using some script to drive it. Check if there is any reference to it in the HEAD section which you may not have copied over.
    Failing that, can you post the (working) HTML page so we can have a look?

    OK - have you got the script between (and including) the following tags included in your HEAD section?
    <pre><SCRIPT language=JavaScript>

    </SCRIPT></pre>

    Otherwise, does this page work when previewed in FP?

    I've got it! I did have the JavaScript tags in my header; however, when looking to make sure I noticed something in the .html code. In the animation code it was looking for .gif images of the different states of the button (normal, hover and down). So I went back to PhotoShop and saved a separate .gif file for each view of the button. Viola! It worked!

    I have no idea why it works when I preview the original page in FrontPage but I have to go through the above steps to get it to work when I incorporate it into another page. The animation script is identical in both. But at least now it works.

    Thanks for your efforts! <img src=/S/joy.gif border=0 alt=joy width=23 height=23>

    The animated file is a button that is supposed to change when you hover over it or click on it.

    Thanks for your help. Hope the file comes through OK.
