Hi, my problem is that a image which i have does not work however when i try another image it does work. Could you tell me what the probalem with it could be thanks. Here is the code i am using-its just to try to make it work, I have checked it in the validator and it says that it needs alt but i am trying to use it as a background image. Thanks.<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"><html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en" dir="ltr"><head><title>Stage1</title></head><body><table><tr><td rowspan="2"><img src="rose.gif" width="200" height="500"/> </td> <td> Garden</td></tr><tr><td> links</td><td>links</td><td>links</td></table></body></html>

Use CSS for background images: td {background-image:rose.gif}That way you don't need to specify alt. Also try to see if the image exists on the server :)

one extra thing..<img src="rose.gif" width="200" height="500"/>needs to be<img src="rose.gif" width="200" height="500" />There needs to be a space between the slash at the end and any attributes before it in xhtml. :)

The image is not on a sever its on my computer within the same file as the html. Thanks.
by this do you mean in the same folder? check that it isalso in your computer right click the image and click 'open with' then firefox or whatever your browser is to see if the file is corupt or wont open in your browser for whatever reason. make sure the file is actually a gif if that is how your refering to it in the html

Ok yeah i did mean folder when i said file. I checked that it worked within another browser; the html file did not work but i did try to open the gif file by going to open with: i chose netscape which did open the file as a image. And i have also checked that it was a gif by selecting the file looking in properties and it was its file size was 1.51 MB and the image which has been working in my html code is 4.29 KB. Thanks

If the browser will display one image but not another image, there are 2 possibilities. Either the file is not an image, or the browser can't find the file. Those are the only two possibilities. If you can open the file as an image, then the problem is that the browser can't find the file.
