Thank you for the reply!   I have discovered that it’s not the local path the 
is the issue.  If I do this, I see “123” in the browser:

   put “123” into url ("file:" & specialFolderPath("documents") & "/map.html")
   set the url of widget "Browser1" to ("file:" & 
specialFolderPath("documents") & "/map.html")

However, the html document I am trying to load references images that were 
included in the app. These images are here: specialFolderPath("engine").  Note 
that a “there is a file” test proves the existence of the file.

So, here’s what I do, I load the html template from a custom property.  In my 
html document, I have this:

   historicalOverlay = new 

I then insert the local path:

   replace "<LOCALINCLUDEDPATH>" with specialFolderPath("engine") in mapFile

Then I save the file to disk and load it into the browser widget.  On my mac 
and iOS it works famously.  On Android, I just get a broken image icon.

Do I have to alter the local image path somehow?

Again, thank you for the response and assistance!

    So If you have path setters here and there, one needs to follow some 
convention, either leave folder string *always* with no closing slash and all 
appended url strings begin with a slash.. I started that way but this was 
always confusing to me because on web / means "from DOCROOT"   so slowly I am 
refactoring all these to
    function path_Assets
        return specialFolderPath("documents") & "/assets/" 
    end path_Assets
    then in any module we use 
    play sound (path_Assets() & "bells-whistles/ding.mp3")  because this is 
"relative" # very subjective..
    So what started failing on Android --  really hard to debug!
    where instances of 
    play sound (path_Assets() & "/bells-whistles/ding.mp3") 
    because these would work on Mac desktop and only fail on Android so you are 
beating your head "what is wrong."

bug 19036?s status is ?Resolved? in version 8.0.0.   So, is something else up?  
Anyone have any insight?
