The only one who *will* see those images is you -- because you're the only
one who has them on the hard drive. You've referenced the hard drive in
your IMG tags instead of referencing them on the server.

You have this:
<.img src="file:/C:/GWRRA/wingline.gif"

And should have this:
<img src="wingline.gif"

(Assuming that the images were uploaded into the same directory as the page
itself.)

And -- all the text on your page is really big because you didn't properly
close the H1 tag at the beginning of your page:

<.h1><.center><.font size="+2">GWRRA, Chapter X, Olean NY<./h><.center>

You've closed an H tag which wasn't opened.

HTML tags work in pairs and they require nesting.

When you open a tag, you need to close it. And closing tags should be in
reverse order from that of opening them.

<.h1><.center><.font size="+2">GWRRA, Chapter X, Olean
NY<./font><./center><./h1>

Also -- when you work on your page, you should edit the copy on your hard
drive instead of using the online copy. The RootsWeb server has modified
it by inserting tags to include the advertisements. By using the online
copy, you just keep adding more advertisements -- you've got 3 sets right now.

Good luck. HTML isn't very difficult, it just has a strict set of rules.
