No matter whether I am using FireFox on MAC or Windows my new posted home page is not showing up when I access the domain. The home page in question is only a jpeg image labeled index.html in the prime directory. The jpeg or "home page" is accessible and is coming up correctly in IE. I am checking it on a desktop MAC and a Windows 7 laptop. Again the home page is only one file.

here's also some good documentation: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/HTML
hello, to me the site appears to be down no matter what browser i use (maybe it is still present in your IE's cache & that's why it's showing). please contact the support of your website's hoster to find out what's going on...
I'm hosting it at godaddy and they couldn't figure it out since it was working with IE and not Firefox or Safari from their side either. They threw me to FireFox.
You cannot have an image appear as your homepage simply by renaming the image "index.html." You have to use code in an actual HTML document to pull the image in.
That makes sense. Im a graphics guy....starting to learn html and hosting protocol. I didn't know if I could get away with just posting an image file. What is a simple text editor I can key in this code and use to save an index.html file?
If you're on a mac, open textedit, then go to window>>make plain text.
If you're on a PC, notepad should do fine.
Im on a mac...I just copy pasted that code block you gave and put in the image name...loading the jpg and index.html file now...let's see if it works. Thank you both for your answers.
What is the best source to learn HTML....
This should do the trick just fine: [http://www.amazon.com/HTML-XHTML-CSS-.../ref=sr_1_
