You can name your images what ever you like. The program /OS should look at the file and not the name. Since Windows looks at the file name, and .file names are much easier to remember even if you use Linux/UN*X. I'd stick to .jpg .png etc. when naming files. To me all the CNN images seems fine, using Netscape 4.77. On Linux there is a program called "file" that determine file type. On Windows you could just open the file in a text editor and the first line will say what kind of images it is. (If it is an image :-) .gif will have GIF, .png PNG, and .jpg JFIF somewhere in the file. As others have said, changing file name will not stop people from copying you images. -- Magnus Østergaard "If you can find ANYONE who agrees with me 100% on everything then... well... you've found _me_"
