[FX.php List] Displaying images

At first glance I'm wondering about the way you've got your URL  
constructed; when I display images on the web, I prefer to mix my PHP  
rather than writing all the HTML inside PHP, but that's just me;  
here's how my code would look:


// some sort of query up here that retrieves the graphic's name or URL

$my_image = "image.gif";


... in the HTML of the page:

<img src = "images/<?php echo $my_image; ?>">

If you're pulling up images of varying sizes, you can leave the  
dimensions out, which will allow the page to show the image with  
whatever its demensions are; if you want all of them to show up with  
the same width, you can specify just a width parameter, like this:

<img src = "images/<?php echo $my_image; ?>" width="125">

More than you asked, probably things you already knew, but just in  
case... :)
