I don't see a point in linking to an image on the desktop. If the HTML file itself is on the desktop just put the name of the image file and it will work. Websites are eventually intended to be put on a web server, so using a local filesystem URI isn't really useful.

The URL you would use in the src attribute would be something like this:Windows XP:

  • file:///C:Documents and Settings[username]Desktopfile.jpg

Windows Vista / Windows 7:

  • file:///C:Users[username]Desktopfile.jpg

look in your error console. it will tell you where the browser is trying to look for the file, and you can match that against the path that it is actually located on the filesystem. Compare the two to try and see where the deviation is.
