When I use code below on #2 it works on just my local machine. When I tried to use #1, my logo does not get display?
What should I do? This is my logo location in VS2010

Images folder

# 1

    height: 56px;
    background-position: left;
    border: thin solid #4d8f75;
    background-image: url('/logo.gif');
    background-repeat: no-repeat;

    height: 56px;
    background-position: left;
    border: thin solid #4d8f75;
    background-image: url('http://localhost:64396/report/Images/logo.gif');
    background-repeat: no-repeat;

Yeah well it can't resolve the path back to the server root and the image is not in a folder below the folder with the page.

You either need to put the image in the same folder as the page or put it in a folder that that be referenced from the server root with ../report/images/logo.gif or ../images/logo.gif
