Where is the problem? Which software should you need?
- Build a directory structure relative to the directory where your
HTML files are. Use these paths exclusively.
- Test your home page using your web browser.
- Your browser will use the relative paths for local files
and complete URLs for everything else.
- Some authoring tools should rename all URLs as needed.
