Well, I'm the only one publishing on this site and my system date is
current, never 1969!!

That usually implies something saved with an invalid date, like June 12,
100 instead of June 12, 2000.  That happens frequently from a javascript
"Getyear()" call.  getyear() passes the number of years since 1900,
which before this year gave a 2 digit date.  Now it passes a value of
100.  The correct function is get fullyear() which passes the 4 digit
year.

Invalid dates are then converted by many programs to a default date.
Netscape, for example, uses MIDNIGHT, January 1, 1970 GMT for any
date/time earlier than that time.  Then it converts to local time.  In
the example, it looks like Eastern Time (GMT -0400), which becomes 8:00
pm 12/31/1969.

Did you perhaps use Netscape to save that image originally?

Nope, just used Excel to make a graph, copied and pasted into composer,
edited a couple things, saved it.  Insert pic into FrontPage, hit save, it
gave me that error.  I thought it was so funny I hit the print screen key
and saved it.  I've done this same graph, composer, save, insert thing
before but never saw this error before.  I think it's funny, that's all.
Don't really mind it and prob won't ever see it again. Oh well.

1. Has Anyone EVER Seen this Before?!?!

I am an experienced solutions developer, but have yet to come across
anything like this.

at:
http://www.phoneflies.com/index1.htm

The image code reads like:

BACKGROUND IMAGES

<body bgcolor="#0096FE" background="images/bkg.gif" link="#FFFFFF"
vlink="#CCCCCC">

DOCUMENT IMAGES

<td><img border="0" src="images/topheader.gif" width="432" height="49"><br>
                      <a href="default.htm">
                      <img border="0" src="images/frntimg.gif" width="432"
height="275"></a></td>
                  </tr>

NOTICE, THEY ARE ALL .gif  IMAGES.

However, when my client, using AOL isp but IE5 browser gets the following:

BACKGROUND IMAGES

<BODY background="New Page 1_files/bkg.gif" bgColor=#0096fe link=#ffffff
vLink=#cccccc>

DOCUMENT IMAGES

<TD><IMG border=0 height=49
                  src="New Page 1_files/topheader.art" width=432><BR><A
                  href="http://www.phoneflies.com/default.htm"><IMG border=0
                  height=275 src="New Page 1_files/frntimg.art"

width=432></A></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></CENTER></DIV></TD></TR>
        <TR>

NOTICE ALL THE DOCUMENT IMAGES ARE .art FILES.

Never seen that before. The background image is also 'mis-pathed'

I used Photoshop 5.5 and I think, their image ready plug-in to create the
images. I said 'I think' because ps 5.5 has a utility to 'save for web'
which I use, and not sure if that is the image ready plug-in.

Any insights are appreciated.
