Richard...this is standard web stuff and really has little to do with FP.
Question...how are you putting up the files from your local drive to the web
server. You need to (in FP terminology) "publish" the web pages to the
server. By doing this, you will automatically change the link from the html
to the image from something like this:
c:\webshare\myweb\images\picture.gif (where c:\webshare\myweb is the name of
the web project)
\images\picture.gif (where the image directory [images] is one level down
from wherever the html page is on the web server)
If you are FTPing or drag/dropping to a network drive using Explorer, the
reference to the images might still looking for them on your local drive.
Take a look at a page with the problem after you put it on the web server
and see if the drive path is still a letter (c:\). If it is, then this is
