Hello All

Good advice above.

Just an idea for anyone getting their head around Web pages...

I've been using a dropbox.com free account as a testing system for Web pages with _relative_ links.

Install the dropbox software (nautilus-dropbox on Ubuntu or dropbox.exe on Windows) and you get a new folder called Dropbox in your home drive / user directory.

Just pop your pages and images (usually in a sub folder) into the Public folder of the dropbox folder. On your PC/Ubuntu box, right click over the index.html then click on the Dropbox item, then Copy Public Link. 

Paste that lot into a Web browser and you can check the _relative_ links, and you can show us if you get lost.


Above is a page in progress (I'll finish it tomorrow afternoon as I have a huge gap between sessions).
