You have to write your own html tag and put it under _content_ macro
in the yourhome.dm macrofile. For example if you have a collection
called mycoll and would like to use an image file myimage.gif to point
to this collection, this is a simple example

_content_ {
<html>
<body >

<A HREF="_httpquery_&c=mycoll"><IMG SRC="_httpimg_/myimage.gif"> My
Collections</A>

</body>
</html>
}

The yourhome.dm has good example on this.
Don't forget to put your macro name (yourhome.dm in this case) in the
main configuration file (main.cfg) list located under etc folder.

I have done such type of customization for my organisation -

Hope this may help you.
