there are at this time only 2 (two) browsers that can handle TIFF images:
Internet Exploder 7
internet Exploder 6.1 with a patch and Windows Imaging and Fax Viewer
(office 2003)
the QuickTime plug ins can read TIFF files, but they are slow and
drastically inefficient. there IS however some stuff you can do with
ImageMagik to make them into a readable image in any browser. thats
php though.
