You would be better off having the HTML page select the image and then
write the HTML to call whatever image. Eg -

Select rndno
Case "1"
	response.write ("<img src='1.gif'>")
Case "2"
	response.write ("<img src='2.gif'>")
End select

This has several advantages -

* Faster execution server-side
* Only two calls to the server
* Smaller log files

If you *really* need to have the page static then you could use


> <.img src="image.asp?img=images/bglogo.gif">
> or even:
> <.img src="image.asp"> and it would show the image from the html page.
