BR: Thanks for your attentive in response to my query. I am keeping you posts in a folder entitled "Browser Widget Manual" 

I tried this but it did not work, I think I missing a piece of the puzzle 

on mouseup
   put the uAlphabetA of this stack  into imageVariable
   put the uAlphabetA of this stack  into img "alphabet"  
       # just checking it’s artist's versions an "A" at 122px H,122px W
   put base64Encode(imageVariable) into b64Data
   replace linefeed with empty in b64Data
   set the htmltext of  widget "browser" to the fld "html"
end mouseup

This image there. It appears into stack and also in the variables....

we have in the html

[snip] background-image: url('data:image/jpg;base64,<b64Data>') [snip]



It this coding to a "stack local " to base64 only required if you want to use it as a background image? What about a 

<img src="assets/img/some.jpg" />

A couple of months ago I imported an entire HTML5 app folder done in React, to a local folder, let's call it 

  workout.livecode # with a browser widget

 it showed images in its asset folder.

But today I cannot getting img src working with 

<body class="bodyStyle">
<div class="textNotice"> 
<img src="alphabet/A_122x122_thm.jpg" /> 
        # the above appears as an image, but with a ? mark in it.
