Hello everyone,

I am new here, just signed up, i need urgent help, i am trying to insert a background image on my index.html or any html pages for that matter, i am having terrible problem, when i browse on localhost host i just get a blank page no images shows, i can see text i've written, but not the image, sometime the image even not show up on the index.html in dreamweaver. i have many times able to insert background images and images on my html pages without problem, but i don't know why this is happening, both images i want to insert are in the right htdoc folders where the index.html page is. i wonder is there a bug with DW8 i've just upgraded from Macromedia Dreamweaver 20004. it was all ok 2 days ago, but all of a sudden nothing seems to work.

any help would be much appreciated, i need to publish this website by tuesday next week.

thanks in advance
