Can you post the path name of the html file from which you've taken this snippet as well the path name to the gif file you're trying to include?

Fun programming etcetera!

When you prepend the '/' to the beginning of a relative link, the browser will omit the contextPath. Remove the slash and make the link relative to the address (in your browser's address window) of the JSP that's being called.
