A broken image appears when using Internet Explorer in Windows XP (Strangely,
firefox in XP or even IE in Windows 2000 doesnt seem to have the problem).
My configuration is Windows XP SP2, Internet Explorer with the latest
updates. I confirmed on a different PC similar configured.
Furthermore, this bug was confirmed by Angela IRC:
<X_L_N_C> hi .. anyone here running windows XP .. go to www.wikipedia.org ...

<Angela> I don't see a broken image
<X_L_N_C> are you using IE ?
<X_L_N_C> can you try it with IE and XP?
<Angela> weird. yes, it is broken in IE
<X_L_N_C> I noticed it last week .. but when I reported it on #wikipedia back
then ..nobody could duplicate it .. but today I noticed it from a different PC
<Angela> If I try to go to the image directly, it doens't even work in
