Dear Ellen:

Adding to Diane's comments, this discrepancy can sometimes be resolved 
by clicking the suspect image, which then takes you to a cached page 
where the image you clicked is supposed to reside, but, also, the term 
for which you searched. You can then scroll down the page to see if the 
proper image exists on the page. This is not always helpful, but can be.
