Accessing images in the /public directory

i am taking a style that someone else put together, and have a simple
question…

the page is currently buried in the site, along with its images… i
moved the images to /public/images

the only problem i have is…

how do i access those files in this case…

how do i encode the style attribute to access the images directory in
the public directory?

thanks!

Note the initial / to make the path from your document root absolute.

Yup. Also, never use the style attribute. Use a separate CSS file
instead.

Ouch! I’ve done that myself a few times. Good luck.
