  Yes, I have html image tags as you describe. I have been told not to use the FileLibrary class for things like CSS, etc, because it gets cached somewhere where it shouldn't, 
but I am forgetting the exact reason now. So, I don't use the FileLibrary for anything, in deployment, and I'm talking about my deployed system here. This code works correctly in my local system that uses a FileLibrary.
