Hi John,

Firstly thanks for the response.
I am a bit new to Flash and didn't know that the MIME was not set,
or what this really means, but I have an idea from the URL you pointed me to.
Sorry to anyone who was caused problems by this. I will contact my
ISP you suggest.
I did checked Fortune City where I a "free" account and they list
"MIME Types supported by FortuneCity...
application/x-shockwave-flash swf"
which I assume means that the MIME has been set by them.
On the strength of this assumption I uploaded the site to Fortune City
and checked it again with MSIE4/NS4 on WIN95 and it worked fine.

I also uploaded some work in progress at:
But this need a version 4 browser Shockwave and sound on your PC for best results.

Am I right in thinking that the MIME has been set at Fortune City and that
these pages can be viewed safely now?

All the best
