Python CGI & Webpage with an Image

Thanks for your very quick response. I have played around a bit more
so that both the image and HTML file are in the public_html folder.
They are called via python using a relative URL, and have permissions
set to 755. Within the HTML file the image is accessed using just
"banner.jpg". The actual page displays ok except for the image - so it
has the same problem as before. However when the same page is
displayed without running through a CGI it displays perfectly.
