im having trouble getting this Image into my html document.
i would love for the image to be under, or next to the item i have in the ordered list, if that is possible. i have tried this in so many different ways and it is just not working.
i do have the HTML file and the image in the same folder.
the file is a GIF image and i have lowered the size of the file significantly since i started.
Any help is appreciated.

i put the image in several different places to test but none of them work on the final page.

There are a lot of useful links at the bottom of every wikipedia page that can actually be used a references. I use this site all the time as a "first stop".</LI>

    will search your wikipedia image from the same directory as your actual html page.

    should be written like this:

    and this will search the image file from the hard drive location on the local PC (the computer who opens this html page)

    i have actually found out that mozilla firefox was having issues, when i switched to IE i got a red X.
    ill try renaming the file but the html doc and the image file are in the same directory.

    i am rather foolish.
    i did not realize i had to hit SAVE AS not just SAVE.
    the problem is resolved.
