    Easiest way is just to go into Application Settings, and insert your html in the banner title field. In your case this would probably work to cut and paste in there:
    <div style="position:absolute; left:255px; top:970px; width:240px; height:30px;">
        <img src="_wp_generated/wp3ffd5d28.png" width="240" height="30" border="0" title="" alt="wp3ffd5d28.png"></div>
    <div style="position:absolute; left:240px; top:0px; width:270px; height:92px;">
        <img src="_wp_generated/wp93d0fbbb.png" width="270" height="92" border="0" title="" alt=""></div>
    <div style="position:absolute; left:60px; top:33px; width:31px; height:27px;">
        <img src="toadstool-webready.gif" width="31" height="27" border="0" title="" alt="toadstool-webready.gif"></div>
    <div style="position:absolute; left:100px; top:36px; width:55px; height:20px;">
        <img src="home-smuglet.gif" width="55" height="20" border="0" title="" alt="home-smuglet.gif"></div>

    Ah. We have a issue with the image file paths. Add a / (just the slash) after every src=". so you would see like this: img src="/_wp_generated/wp3ffd5d28.png" ...

    That will tell the web browser to look in for the images instead of
