Thanks, Jeanne.  I was trying to include the URL keyword before the 
file name.  But here is a new problem.  The first time I set the 
filename of the image to a URL on a web server it works fine.  But if 
I try to set it to a different web URL it sticks with the first 
image, no matter what.  It will let me set the filename to anything I 
want, but the image displayed does not change UNLESS I set the 
filename of the image to a local file.  Then it displays that image 
file no problem.  Here's where it gets weird:  If I try to set the 
filename back to any image on any web server, it only displays the 
first web image set, every time.  If I save, close and relaunch the 
stack it will then, finally, display the last web image set.

This is consistent in Rev 1.1.1b1 for Mac OS X and OS 9.2.  It 
appears to be a bug.  Can anyone else confirm this and/or tell me 
what I'm doing wrong?
