Thanks to Beth, Barry and Tracy for their help on the correct syntax for
paths!

This is what we've decided:

(This is for Windows, btw. Other conventions apply in the Unix world.)

====

To remove all confusion, use this whenever possible:

c:\Name1\Name2

=====

If the directory path is not known:

.\Folder1\Folder2

This syntax implies relativity: we don't know where Folder1 is installed,
but we know that Folder2 is always installed in Folder1.

=====

\\MachineName\ShareName\Root

When you are referencing a specific share name on a network computer.

Thanks Again!
