HTML in Short Description not working

I’m trying to add an image with a link in the Short Description field of a product.  However, I cannot get the image to display.  I can get the exact same syntax to show in a CMS page, but not in the Short Description field?  I can get a basic link to work, but not an image link?

This works:

<a href="{{store url="}}columbia_parts_diagram_taper">View Parts Locator</a>

This does not work:

<a href="{{store url="}}columbia_parts_diagram_taper"><img src="{{skin url=’images/diagrams/parts_locator.gif’}}” alt=""/></a>

This works in CMS page:

<img src="{{skin url=’images/diagrams/parts_locator.gif’}}” alt=""/>

So, the image is pathed correctly so it seems…

Any ideas?

Do you have “add category to url” enabled? This may require an extra ../ in the path.

Where do I check if I had “add category to url” enabled?  I didn’t notice that setting?  Also, I believe that the “site url=” designation eliminates having to do the “../” path?
