asp:literal using literal in ASP for iamges

I am trying to develop some code I have had working in the past, but this code only allowed a images that are specified in the code to be displayed.  To solve this I decided i would use a literal and C# (see below).  The reason is i have the hover functionality working well in CSS, so wanted to keep that.
Now if i use the literal the image does not show when the thumbnail is hovered on.  BUT, if in the webpage I right click and get source, put the literal string directly into my source then it works fine.
What am I doing wrong...going nuts here.

Here is my code

ASPX
<%@ Page language="C#" codefile="~/ImageLoad.aspx.cs" autoeventwireup="true" masterpagefile="~/MasterPage.master" inherits="ImageLoad"%>

<asp:content id="myimages" runat="server" contentplaceholderid="MasterPageContent">

<div class="myPics">

    <div id="imageContainer">
    <asp:literal runat="server" id="imged" />
</div>
</div>
</asp:content>

C# Bit:
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        string html = "";
        char indx = 'a';
        html = "<ul>" + Environment.NewLine;

        foreach (FileInfo fi in new DirectoryInfo(Server.MapPath("Images/fullsize")).GetFiles())
        {
            if (fi.Extension == ".jpg")
            {
                System.Web.UI.WebControls.Image i1 = new System.Web.UI.WebControls.Image();
                i1.Width = 100;
                i1.Height = 100;
                html += "<li> <a class=\"gallery slide" + indx + "\" href=\"#nogo\"> <span> <asp:image id=\""
                    + indx + "\" imageurl=\"~/Images/fullsize/" + fi.Name + "\" runat=\"server\"/> </span> </a>            
                  </li>";
                indx++;
             }
        }
        html += "</ul>";
        //imged.Text = html;

   
    }
//ASPX
 
<%@ Page language="C#" codefile="~/ImageLoad.aspx.cs" autoeventwireup="true" masterpagefile="~/MasterPage.master" inherits="ImageLoad"%>
 
<asp:content id="myimages" runat="server"   contentplaceholderid="MasterPageContent">
 
<div class="myPics">
 
    <div id="imageContainer">
    <asp:literal runat="server" id="imged" />
</div>
</div>
</asp:content>
 
 
C# Bit:
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        string html = "";
        char indx = 'a';
        html = "<ul>" + Environment.NewLine;
 
        foreach (FileInfo fi in new 
            DirectoryInfo(Server.MapPath("Images/fullsize")).GetFiles())
        {
            if (fi.Extension == ".jpg")
            {
                System.Web.UI.WebControls.Image i1 = new 
                       System.Web.UI.WebControls.Image();
                i1.Width = 100;
                i1.Height = 100;
                html += "<li> <a class=\"gallery slide" + indx + "\" href=\"#nogo\"> <span> <asp:image id=\""
                    + indx + "\" imageurl=\"~/Images/fullsize/" + fi.Name + "\" runat=\"server\"/> </span> </a>             
                  </li>";
                indx++;
             }
        }
        html += "</ul>"; 
        //imged.Text = html;
 
    
    }

you can't render an asp.net control into a literal:
 html += "<li> <a class=\"gallery slide" + indx + "\" href=\"#nogo\"> <span> <asp:image id=\""....

just use a plain html image:
 html += "<li> <a class=\"gallery slide" + indx + "\" href=\"#nogo\"> <span> <image id=\""....

I guess to be more correct, you can render an asp.net control into a literal, but it won't work as an asp.net control, it will just render the text of the control "<asp:image.." as it is, its not a real image control

oh ok , i understand that thank you....so I changed my code to take out the <asp: bit and left it as
<image.

Now I when i hover over the thumbnails I get a little square, the picture placeholder image with the little square, triangle and circle in it.  I checked my image path and that looks ok.  Am I still missing something?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Ok lets make it clearer...this is one of my image lines....i can't figure out what I am doing wrong here!

With this code I get a image place little square with red cross

<a class="gallery slidea" href="#nogo"> <span> <img id="a" src="~/Images/fullsize/small2.jpg" runat="server" alt="APIC"/> </span> </a>

using this code:
<a class="gallery slidea" href="#nogo"> <span> <image id="a" imageurl="~/Images/fullsize/small2.jpg" runat="server" > </span> </a>

I get little square, the picture placeholder image with the little square, triangle and circle in it.

Ok I worked it out I think

src="~/Images/fullsize/small2.jpg"
needed to be
src="Images/fullsize/small2.jpg"

and I deleted the runat server bit too

Working so far
Thank you for all your help!
