Tried that (space between images) but still had the same results. In fact, when I would put a space, sometimes I would see an _ between images, sometimes not.
What I ended up doing was create a table with 1 row and 5 columns. I then moved the pictures to a column. At first it didn't work so I looked at the html code and one of the items had an incorrect reference number. Actually, somehow the number got changed not by me but the software because I had the correct link; checked before I did a preview. Change happened after preview. It works with the table format now.
Does the preview set up a cache that does not rewrite itself and then when it exits, rewrite to any files that are original files? I tried what you suggested several times and even looked at the html code but the code pointed to the right pages. I don't understand how things can rewrite to something different on return from the preview.
Thanks for the help.
