    I'm just learning html and right now i'm just throwing together a document kind of showing what I've learned so far to my instructor. So my code reads like this,

    <a href="http://www.google.com">
    <img border="0" src="C:\Documents and Settings" width="65" height="35"
    </a>
    I shortened the filepath but other than that everything is there. The image being used is a .gif so the only thing i could think i'm doing wrong is not putting .gif at the end of filepath.
    What happens is it just shows a broken puzzle piece where the picture should be, like firefox doesn't support it and, i'm using a new version of firefox.
    All help is appreciated, thank you in advance.

    The only thing could happen is either you don't have the file at the specified path or you mention the path incorrectly.

    Exactly what shabbir said.

    Also I mentioned before if you add the exact picture in the same folder/directory as the document you are adding it to and type this as the code.

    Code:
    <img src="image.gif" width="44" height="44">
