    Dear Ralph.m,

    Thank you again for all your help.

    I apologize for the delay. I had to get barrels of corn for the livestock which we will use for the project to help youth morals.

    I open the page as text taught by going to start then search and type name in box. Click name and page appears in firefox.

    Using Windows 7, I go to file of both fall.jpg and index.html. I then right mouse click each file and click share with, and click homegroup (read) for each file instead of leaving it as nobody.

    I hope you are doing well. Thanks again for your advice and time.

    Sincerely,

    Stratton

    Dear Ralph.m,

    I also opened index.html in Windows Explorer and at least got the outline of the picture. When I left clicked it and clicked view picture nothing happened. Complicated technology it seems to me.

    Thanks again.

    Sincerely,

    Stratton

    Double clicking upon the *.html file should load it or even going to the web browser's menu: File > Open File... would work.

    Like Ralph, I really don't know what "share" has to do with these files at all. Are you restricting them on a mapped Network for some bizarre reason?

    On a local machine all you need do is place both the image *.jpg file and *.html in the same folder and double-click upon or open the *.html which in turn will launch the browser. That will thus request and load the image.

    If the image isn't displaying there is a extremely strong chance you still have typos in your markup or the image is not in the correct place the W3C Validator should have said; "Result: Passed" without any errors or warnings. If you still have errors fix them all first.

    You say Tomato...

    @Sami Al-Rawi ; Do not forget that all references in an HTML page (images, links to other pages) are relative to the current page.
    There is an exception to this. If you use the BASE tag in your page, it establishes a [different] point for all references.

    Dear ParkinT,

    Thank you very much for your advice.

    I will make these changes soon and you are very helpful to build my site <snip> which is crude now. I can't bring it up even though it has public access.

    Sincerely,

    Stratton

    Dear All helpful advisers,


    Confused about error messages:

    The Unicode Byte-Order Mark (BOM) in UTF-8 encoded files is known to cause problems for some text editors and older browsers. You may want to consider avoiding its use until it is better supported.

    And

    Mismatch between Public and System identifiers in the DOCTYPE declaration

    This document uses an inconsistent DOCTYPE declaration. The Public Identifier -//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN declares the XHTML 1.0 Strict document type, but the associated System Identifier http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1-strict.dtd does not match this document type.

    The recommended System Identifier for XHTML 1.0 Strict is http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd.

    The safest way to use a correct DOCTYPE declaration is to copy and paste one from the recommended list and avoid editing that part of your markup by hand.

    I will keep reading text to fix errors identified by validator.

    I need to break for weekend but will get busy again next week.

    Thank you all for your help.

    Sincerely,

    Stratton

    Obviously you have lots of typos in your markup and have saved it with a BOM and typically you shouldn't use the BOM http://www.w3.org/International/ques...yte-order-mark.

    The top of the page should read:

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
         "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    You didn't type the URI correctly you missed out the xhtml1/DTD/ point of note; when doing the DOCTYPE it's usually easier to copy a working example as it is 'case sensitive' and tales a lot of fiddly typing with XHTML.
