Thanks so much,

Tristan

Hi and thank you,

Yes, after I posted I trialed uploading the content to our own web server and referencing the files like that, which worked perfectly, although this is not ideal as we then have files scattered.  This sounds like a sensible solution to the problem as it keeps the content in one place.  Thank you.
