|that looks like a security precaution. Normally a web site is supposed to refer to its own pages, not to the local file system.
And AFAIK XAMPP and other PHP systems also have such (optional?) precautions; mine is set to allow access only to files that are under the server's root.
So what should work is file mypage.html containing
when it is stored at the site's root, together with aaa.png, and bbb.png in the subdirectory images.
You wouldn't like a web server to give access to files outside its root, would you? The entire file system would be up for grabs.
