Re: lilypond-doc-2.4.3-1 using setup.exe 2.457.2.1 fails to display music images

Can you verify that the pictures are OK with in the one-big-page, ie,
something like


Yes, I verified this page works correctly in firefox and internet explorer as described in detail below.

or using a Cygwin browser that supports pictures (do we have one, w3m?).

On my machine cygwin is installed on the f: disk. After reading your message I noticed the following:

1) I go to the directory, F:\cygwin\usr\share\doc\lilypond-2.4.3-1 in windows XP explorer and double click on index.html. 2) This fires up my browser and redirects the browser to file:///f:/cygwin/usr/share/doc/lilypond-2.4.3-1/Documentation/out-www/index.html
3) I select any link and it takes me to an HTML page. If that page is supposed to have music, it instead displays "[image of music]"
4) When I tried the one-big-page equivalent that you asked me to test it instead takes me to:
5) I noticed the difference in address you suggested and my one-big-page html. The only difference is that mine has the extra "lilypond" subdirectory in its path.
6) I removed the extra directory so that it matched your suggested path except it is on my f: drive. And that displayed all the music CORRECTLY rather than the "[image of music]" fall back display message.
7) I did not exhaustively explore the lilypond-2.4.3-1 subdirectories and html files, but as far as I can tell, the one-big-page html in the out-www directory is the ONLY html page that displays the music correctly.
