Subject Re: problem with JSP displaying broken image link
Date Mon, 19 Mar 2001 08:05:36 GMT
Could some one please confirm that geocities is using mod_rewrite or
something of that nature?   Just write simple jsp to display an jpeg hosted
on geocities and tell me if you get a broken image link.   Be sure to clear
the cache first before you test this.

Thanks.
