Hi John,

Do you have an URL we can visit and check?

As you mentioned localhost, I'm assuming you're trying to view your
website on a web server (Apache, or similar) running on your own PC.
In that case, you'll need to copy all of the files into the
appropriate folder which Apache uses as it's main folder. For Apache
installed through the software centre in Ubuntu, this is /var/www/ but
other implementations may vary.

I'd also check that the names you've used in your HTML code is
correctly pointing to the files you're trying to reference. In
particular, take care of the file extensions - you've mentioned
"index.html" but "gallery.htm" (no 'l').

Good luck,
