in reply to CGI display a gif

I would recommend against keeping images in the cgi-bin, and place the images/ directory in the web root. You can ensure that this is accessed by changing the SRC attribute on your image tag to "/images/1.gif". The leading slash moves us out of the local directory.

    i have noticed that the properties of cgi-bin foler are read only, does this make a difference (using XP)
      the question is why does it work with html code and not cgi though? seems odd
