A puzzling situation ...

OK, I'm tossing this one out there for some uber-er geek than me to answer.

I just set up a site for teachers who want to be tutors in our "No Child Left Behind" venture, which we're sharing with about a half dozen other local Club Z! franchises, who each have a block of NCLB schools here. On the site there are a number of graphics, maps of each "region", and a big logo up top.

The problem that I'm finding is that Netscape 8.0 in its I.E. mode is sort of "iffy" about displaying the graphics.

The page displays just fine in Netscape 8.0 in the FireFox mode, it displays just fine in both MSIE and in FireFox, it displays just fine in AOL's browser, and there are no problems in Netscape 7.2 ... it's just in the "I.E. mode" for NS8 that this is cropping up.

Does anybody have any idea why this might be? The logo is a 400x400 GIF wtih a translucent background, while the maps are each 170x200 JPGs ... nothing unduly fancy or unwieldy. Needless to say, I'd prefer to have the page display as intended in all browsers, but I'm stumped on what might be going funky in the case of the I.E. mode in NS8!

Any suggestions?
