The img tag (and all content) has to go inside the body element.Also, spaces need to be encoded as %20. Try not to use spaces in filenames. Check that the image actually exists were you think it does.On a separate note, <p> is not an empty tag and the end of each paragraph needs to be denoted by </p>.

In fact, in HTML 4.01 Strict, it is perfectly valid to leave a <p> tag open. Try in the W3C validator. (Also, refer to my signature)

We discourage authors from using empty P elements. User agents should ignore empty P elements.
Which admittedly is not the same thing as saying it's not valid. Edited by Deirdre's Dad

That's not mentioning open tags, it's mentioning empty elements, like this: <p></p>. It really is a bad practice.Not closing <p> tags is neither a bad practise, nor discouraged. It's just more normal and easier to understand writing a closing </p> tag in HTML (that's why I do it). Also, it makes it easier to switch to XHTML if that becomes necessary.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd"><html>	<head>		<title>Test</title>	<body>		<p>			Test

Alright, this is valid, but do you really recommend anyone code like this?Edit: But ok, it isn't technically incorrect.

When it comes to <p> and <li> tags in HTML 4.01, I don't recommend it, but neither do I discourage it.It all depends on the preference of the web programmer because it has no negative effect whatsoever on the resulting page.Other practices, such as short-tags (example:
<a href=""<b></</a>

), I discourage because it has little support from many browsers (I think the big ones work, though).
