Attachments are allowed in the DTP Forum. What file type are you trying to attach, and how big is the file? What is happening when you try to upload an attachment? Are you getting error messages? I've attached a 152KB JPG file here.

Ah - just looked in the snowflake font thread and it seems that you've gotten it figured out OK!

I got an error message once - and didn't notice because it appears above the upload form - not the best place IMO, your eye is on the input field and buttons. I had to try again, and watch very carefully what happened before I noticed it (file too large).

Also, the error message is just red text - an accessibility problem again, since that will appear black to many people who are color blind. Make it larger, put a think border around it, put it below or inside the form...

Default Wrong Browser

The answer seems to be the wrong browser, or at least the wrong browser options. My MSIE browser has all the options turned on, and that let me upload the snowflakes. Firefox did not, but I have several options turned off in Firefox.

The uploader uses JavaScript - is that what you have turned off in Firefox? It's also within a popup window - but a popup that comes up on request only; you might want to check your popup settings as well.
