This really isn't the place for questions like this, but more than likely
your image is a child element of either a <table>, <tr>, <ul>, <ol>, or
something like that.

Subject: ok what goes on ear?

this error came up from 
that checks using 
 <http://validator.w3.org/> http://validator.w3.org/
Line 2407, column 21: 
  "images/blacksq.gif"> comes up
and this is the faulty line
[2407]<img alt="the picture" src="images/blacksq.gif"> comes up

and then gives this message

Error: element "IMG" not allowed here; check which elements this element may
be contained within (
<http://validator.w3.org/docs/errors.html#not-allowed> explanation...)

clicking onto explanation gives

not_allowed"document type does not allow element "FOO" here" 

Straightforward, but not terribly informative. There are a lot of different
errors that will generate this error message: 

*	Using an unknown tag. In this case, the next error will be
<http://validator.w3.org/docs/errors.html#undef-tag> "element `FOO'

*	Using a tag in the wrong place. For instance,
<TABLE><TD>blah</TABLE> will cause this error. The trick here is that
<TABLE> cannot directly contain <TD>'s; it contains <TR>'s which contain
<TD>'s. The above example should be <TABLE><TR><TD>blah</TABLE>. 



were does "FOO" come into it? 
more important TABLES the  wrong code is not used in tables.
