I have a line of HTML code which inserts an image placeholder into a table and I have the img src stored in a PHP variable. For some reason I can not get the variable to echo anything. So when I view the page the sorce code shows <img src ="">. What am I doing wrong? (I have echoed the variable out elsewhere on the page and it echo's fine.)
<td> <img src="<? echo $FlagImage ?>" alt="Flag Image" name="FlagPlaceHolder" width="150" height="150" id="FlagPlaceHolder" /> </td>

<img src="<?php echo $FlagImage; ?>" alt=...

That did not affect it... I have php variable echoed throughout the page.. all others echo correctly. I have tried echoing the same variables that echo correctly on other parts of the page in the <img src...> and I still get nothing... here's a bit more of my code below: All the other vaiables are echoing fine...
<table width="487">
  <tr>
    <td colspan="4"><div align="center" class="style12">
      <p class="style4">Audit Report For Store #<? echo $StoreNum ?></p>
      <p class="style4"><? echo $City ?>, <? echo $State ?>&nbsp;</p>
    </div></td>
    <td> <img src='<?php echo $FlagImage; ?>' alt="Flag Image" name="FlagPlaceHolder" width="150" height="150" id="FlagPlaceHolder" /> </td>

I have... when I echo it out I get:  ../HAN/images/RedFlag.png

UPDATE: when I echoed the $City vairable in the <img src > it did appear in the souce code on the webpage..  and as I said, when I echo $ImageFlag elsewhere on the page it echos out fine... I'm at a loss... I've tried changing the variable to just RedFlag.png and typing in the path and just echoing the image name but I get the same result... everything except the echoed value appears :(

This seems odd.... I have an external php file that I call VarConversions which I include() in the page. This file pulls my vairables from a database and changes the values for disply on the webpage. I have the code below in the VarConversions.php script...
If I manually define $FlagImage without using "if" staements, then it works fine, but when I use the if statements to define the variable it will not echo in the img src.
(Remember, the $FlagImage varibable DOES echo correctly outside of the img src, so I know the conversion is happening properly)
//Flag Image Coversion
if ($FlagColor =="G") {
$FlagImage = "../HAN/images/GreenFlag.png";
}
else if ($FlagColor =="Y") {
$FlagImage = "../HAN/images/YellowFlag.png";
}
else if ($FlagColor =="R") {
$FlagImage = "../HAN/images/RedFlag.png";
}

Try:

<img src=<?php echo "'" + $FlagImage; + "'"?> alt="Flag Image" name="FlagPlaceHolder" width="150" height="150" id="FlagPlaceHolder" />

I figured out my problem... and I apoligize for wasting your time (I will be assigning points to all who tried to help). The issue was my fault, the query I run to pull the $FlagColor (and other variables) from the database was actually running after I inserted the $FlagImage varible into the script.. so when I tried to have the image appear at the top of the screen, the variable did not have a value. When I tested it by echoing the varible on another part of the page, I was echoing it out further down, after the query had run.
   Thanks to all who offered help.
