Why aren’t my images going away?

I’ve been doing some accessibility programming/testing around the condition of the user turning off images.  The Firefox web developer toolbar makes it real easy to turn images on and off – except there’s one gotcha.  You have to be running your page on a server to get this to happen.  If you just open up a file, your images remain in view.  So, remember – http:// not file://.

Hope this helps someone from a couple of wasted hours trying to figure out what’s going on…..
