I am using Doc-To-Help as an authoring tool to create a JavaHelp target from an user manual written in WORD.
When I try to create a link to an external JPG-image the image is not shown correctly when following the link.
Instead of that I see a a lot of hieroglyphics. The image seems not to be interpreted as an image.
When opening the created HTML-Files with the Internet Explorer the image is shown fine when clicking on the link.
Hard to say.
What's the encoding (standard/progressive)?
Have you tried to see that image offline within a JLabel or some other Swing component, maybe it's swing related?
Have you checked what Content-Type is actually set in the response when getting that JPEG?
