Based on your source, you are still linking to an image on
your C: drive in your My Pictures folder and not your
website. Make sure the image you want is on the web server
then link to it directly (i.e. http://kle11225-
01.k12.fsu.edu/appleoutline.gif) If your editor won't let
you do this, then after you have created the web page open it
with notepad or some other simple editor and change the link
manually. Once you've done this you should be able to
upload / publish the page to your website.
