[Laszlo-user] Using PHP to proxy content

Can you run LiveHTTPHeaders extension in firefox to see what HTTP request is
actually being made? Or examine the log on your web server to see what is
being requested?

Also, how come you are putting this into an <img> tag inside of a text
field? Is there
any way you could use a regular Laszlo view instead? I ask because Flash's
implementation of inline images inside of text fields is shot full of bugs,
it barely works at all.
