Jpg images inside external .txt file

Hi, I am trying to have links and images show inside an externaly loaded .txt file.
I can get the link to work, but the images don’t show up.

here is the code i have:

content.html = true;
loadhtmlText = new loadVars();
loadhtmlText.onLoad = function() {
	content.htmlText = this.textstart;

in the .txt file, using “<a href=“”>link</a>” works,
but "<img src=“websiteimage.jpg”> doesn’t. the image doesn’t apear.
i’ve made sure that the jpg is not progressive.

i maneged to get images to show up in a text box about a year ago, can’t beleive i’ve forgot how to do it!

any help much appreciated
