I have this problem

Im try to make a header with php

In this header I have for example code like this:


echo '<img  src="imagenes/example.jpg" width="100" height="100">';

When I use my header from the main page of my site (http://mysite.com/index.php) my header works without problems.

But if Im in a directory inside of my site my header cannot find the image

I was thinking to use absolute paths in my header for example:
echo '<img src="/home/myserver/public_html/imagenes/example.jpg" width="100" height="100">';

¿But it is safe to use full paths?
