Thanks for visiting that page and helping me out with this.
On my HDD, in the folder:
I placed 5 files: 3 i_xxxxxx.gif files and 2 poweredbyxxxxx.gif
that's all. None of the other icons shown in the online /icons are from me or for that test page. I can't even find these icons shown in that online icons folder on my hard drive! I had hoped that would give me a clue ... but it only confuses me more ... these tiny gifs from 1996 have to come from somewhere!
So I have finder now searching for files from 02/22/96 (sigh)
Is there any firsthand location where it would pick this from? I know these gifs are not mine and are not in the apache/webserver area on my hard drive.
