awarnier,

Here is another go at this--

Here is the 1st error from error_log--
[Wed Apr 08 15:27:56 2009] [error] [client 10.143.15.10] File does not
exist: /home/deh/webpage/mysite.verizon.net/res7yvp2/w4dh22/imagelib,
referer: http://10.143.15.1:41574/

Here is the access_log--
10.143.15.10 - - [08/Apr/2009:15:27:56 -0400] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 304 - "-"
"Opera/9.64 (X11; Linux i686; U; en) Presto/2.1.1"
10.143.15.10 - - [08/Apr/2009:15:27:56 -0400] "GET /index.html HTTP/1.1" 304
- "http://10.143.15.1:41574/" "Opera/9.64 (X11; Linux i686; U; en)
Presto/2.1.1"
10.143.15.10 - - [08/Apr/2009:15:27:56 -0400] "GET
/imagelib/sitebuilder/layout/spacer.gif HTTP/1.1" 404 1145
"http://10.143.15.1:41574/" "Opera/9.64 (X11; Linux i686; U; en)
Presto/2.1.1"

Here is where the file that was not found resides--
deh@PIII:~/webpage/mysite.verizon.net/imagelib/sitebuilder/layout> ls -l
total 16
-rwxr-xr-x 1 www users 43 2007-06-06 13:05 blank.gif
-rwxr-xr-x 1 www users 67 2007-06-06 13:05 spacer.gif

Here is where index.html resides and <DirectoryRoot> is set--
deh@PIII:~/webpage/mysite.verizon.net/res7yvp2/w4dh22> ls -l
total 80
-rwxr-xr-x 1 www users 21461 2009-04-08 14:47 id2.html
-rwxr-xr-x 1 www users 30840 2009-04-08 14:47 id3.html
-rwxr-xr-x 1 www users 22716 2009-04-08 14:47 index.html

Here is the line from the html file--
<td width="257" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" colspan="2" rowspan="3" valign="top">
../../imagelib/sitebuilder/layout/spacer.gif <br></td>
[BTW, the html box is not checked, but if following line with the "<" ">"
included in above, it shows up correctly in the message entry box, but in
the Preview Message there is only a faint icon of a page.  Is there
someplace else where html gets turned on besides the where the message is
posted?]
img src="../../imagelib/sitebuilder/layout/spacer.gif" alt=""

This path/file is correct when starting from the directory with index.html.
The 'GET' in the access file would be correct if the "../../" was prepended
to the path/file.
