Latest versions of Firefox and Opera:

I am calling an image embedded in an html page from the local file system like this:

<img src="file:///c:/image.jpg" border="0">

and the image is not showing on the page!

It does display in IE and Netscape. Firefox and Opera will both display the image if i just put file:///c:/image.jpg
directly into the address bar.

Does anyone know what is wrong?

It works for me to if you save the html file on your local system and open it as a file from the browser. It does not work when the html file is sitting on a remote server.

It does not work when the html file is sitting on a remote server.

Unless I misunderstand you, that would mean the path to the image is being calculated as local to the remote machine -- not just the server application on the machine, but the entire machine.
