It may be the path to the image you're referencing. The way you have it now it's looking for a folder called "img" within the folder that contains your html file. So the image path is relative to the html that is looking for it. It's hard to say what's wrong unless I knew where the image was in the folder structure.

I have fixed the problem :) Thanks for the help Ron

img src="websitewaters-island01-stage02/img/logo.gif" alt="Smells Like Bakin'" is what i needed.

I downloaded the folder off the internet. The folder is called

"websitewaters-island01-stage02" .

Inside the folder is another folder called "img".

Inside img is the the picture i need to use "logo.gif"

@Furquan -

There's a great blog post over on CSS Tricks about how paths works that should help clarify things.
