Thanks to all.
As I said in an earlier post, I'm just getting back into mapping. I copied all
my older stuff into an ms_demo directory and started from there.
That INCLUDED my old .map file which was missing IMAGEPATH and IMAGEURL. (It's
all so easy once you get the answers!)
Thanks again and have a good holiday!
