any suggestions?

Your image has a root-relative path. When viewing locally, your browser doesn't know what the root directory of the site is, so it just looking in the root directory of your hard drive.

When you insert images, DW lets you select whether the path should be root-relative or document-relative (which it sounds like you usually use).

In the "Preview in Browser" category of DW's prefs you can choose to use a temp file for previewing in an external browser to get around the path problem.

I thought I tried that, but apparently I did not.
