A little more info...

The browser is sending the following Accept: header

Accept: text/html,image/gif,*,q=.2,*/*,q=.2

In the cases where it failed to load an image, there was no other
variant besides a .gif.  I've gotten in the habit of writing the
HTML to request *most* files without an extension so that they
could be changed rather painlessly.

What's the effect of the single '*'?

Could someone give me a server interpretation of this?
