I've been trying to get the image embedded in my csss document from a pre-built html page of a friend of mine. Here is the string from the html:
<table width="100%" align=center border=0>
<td bgColor=gray><IMG height=196 title="Beautiful Adenium Plants for Sale"
src="./images/banner-c.png" width=100% border=0>
<script src="menubar/cg_banner.js" menumaker></script>
to secure the site-as it's a sales page.
