I am having a problem with a sliced image it appears fine in IE but looks
like a checker board in Netscape.

Thanks in advance

Why do you need to slice an image in the first place?

I thought slicing an image helped lessen download time.

You need more markup to put it back together.
You need more http requests to get it in the first place.
Compression is less efficient (I think)

So no, it increases download time.

(1) You didn't answer his question :~(

(2) He did it because it looks cool :~)

I copied and pasted his markup and it looks effective in IE6, although it's
a lot of work for what he has achieved :~(

No, it increases it. An HTTP request (and usually a new connection) has
to be made for every slice instead of once for the whole image.

This isn't his 24/7 help desk. That's down the hall to your right, and
have your credit card ready.

And increases load time for no reason.

How do you know?

No it isn't. Its a lot of work[1] for nothing.

[1] Slicing up the image, NOT creating the graphic in the first place.

The image was already sliced I'm just trying to get it together so it look
ok in Netscape it's working fine in IE but there is a white space line
between the top and bottom part of the graphic in Netscape.

I have had this problem before with Netscape and thought someone here might
be able to give me some advise on how to alleviate the line between the
individual pictures.

Also what would I need to do to not have to place then all in a row to stop
the white lines between each picture?

Thanks in advance

The thing is your *Target Audience* won't be Netscape users, so don't worry
about it.

They'll all be using Internet Explorer browsers. <grin>
