Adding Adverts in the Template

#1
This probably isn't the place to add this, but I can't find my licence information to be able to access that particular forum (apologies to the staff if this is wrong).

I need some help!

So, I'm an xF n00b, with less than a week using it...so far so good, really loving it! However, I'm having an issue with adding adverts to the sidebar.

Here's the code that I'm trying to add:

<div style="text-align: center;">

<a href="http://www.crownandcaliber.com/get-...rum&utm_medium=Banner&utm_campaign=TKF+Banner" title="TKF Sponsor: Crown & Caliber" target="_blank"><img style="padding: 0px 0px 5px 0px;" src="images/banners/crownandcaliber_banner.gif" height="90" width="240"></a>

<div style="border: 1px dashed #000; background-color: #d7d7d7; width: 234px; padding: 2px; margin-bottom: 5px; margin-left: 1px;">
<a style="font-color: #000;" href="http://www.lionseek.com/watches" target="_blank">Lionseek - Search Watches For Sale</a><br />
</div>

<a href="http://www.timekeeperforum.com/banners/creationwatches_ROS.htm" title="CreationWatches.com: Seiko Watches, Citizen Watches, Orient Watches with Free Shipping" target="_blank"><img style="padding: 0px 0px 5px 0px;" src="http://www.creationwatches.com/images/240x90.gif" height="90" width="240"></a>

<a href="http://www.timekeeperforum.com/banners/demetre_ROS.htm" title="TKF Sponsor: M.P. Demetre Jewelers" target="_blank"><img style="padding: 0px 0px 5px 0px;" src="http://www.timekeeperforum.com/banners/demetre_240x90.gif" height="90" width="240"></a>

<a href="http://www.timekeeperforum.com/banners/everestbands_ROS.htm" title="TKF Sponsor: Everest Horology Products" target="_blank"><img style="padding: 0px 0px 5px 0px;" src="http://www.timekeeperforum.com/banners/everestbands_240x90.gif" height="90" width="240"></a>

<div style="border: 1px dashed #000; background-color: #d7d7d7; width: 234px; padding: 2px; margin-left: 1px;">

<a href="http://www.timekeeperforum.com/showthread.php?14866-Banner-Advertising-on-TKF">Advertise on TKF</a><br />

</div>

</div>


Whenever I added it to the template, this was the end result:



I'm not versed enough in coding (since I'm not a coder) to be able to differentiate why the CreationWatches.com advert is working, and why the others are not. I'm sure that there's a simple reason why...

I tested it on my local and it all works fine, apart from images/banners/crownandcaliber_banner.gif which is a relative URL.
