Hi. I'm modifying blackcandy's SideBar menu and was trying to add a picture in the list, like so:

<div id="Sidebar" class="typography">
        <div class="sidebarBox">

                <ul id="Menu2">
                        <% control Menu(2) %>
                        <% if Children %>
                                <li class="$LinkingMode"><a href="$Link" title="Go to the $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMoode levela"><span><em><img src="../../images/boxorange.gif" />$MenuTitle.XML</em></span></a>
                        <% else %>
                                        <li><a href="$Link" title="Go to the $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode levela"><span><em><img src="../../images/boxorange.gif" />$MenuTitle.XML</em></span></a>
                                <% end_if %>

                        <% end_control %>
                <div class="clear"></div>
        <div class="sidebarBottom"></div>

If I put an alt in it shows the alt, but it doesn't ever show the image. Am I doing something wrong?

First thing I'd try would be to replace those relative image links with root-relative ones. I strongly suspect that will fix the problem.
