    Here's the problem I am experiencing...

    I have always used IE and am used to developing within a Folder/Sub-Directory and using relative links based on where the start.htm page is at...

    Well, I created a CD witht he source on it and all the links work correctly in IE but Mozilla won't follow the links...

    If I open the page in Mozilla and edit it I have to be (apparently) in the 'Root' but even then IE doesn't like what the Mozilla editor puts out...

    Arrrrgggghhhh!

    So, does anyone have a clue as to what I should be looking up?

    My web searches have been, shall we say, rather confusing...

    But, I *really* need to develope the pages in a folder several deep and then put that folder onto the CD as the root...

    What am I missing?

    how are you coding your links? just give an example like
    <a href="www.yahoo.com">this one</a>.

    If you do them as relative to a root directory, say start.html is in the root / and you want to link to a file in /subdir you might do it <a href="subdir/thefile.html"> which probably works in IE, or you could do it like <a href="/subdir/thefile.html"> which I think should work in any browser... but if this isn't the case, let me know.

    Will get back to you when I get home tonight...

    As near as I can figure IE will do relative links from the 'currently opened' page but mozilla seems to remain relative to the 'first opened' page...

    Not sure... But, will try to confirm tonight...

    As the software on the disk is only 'Windows' based and IE exists on all windows computers...

    The quickest fix would be to write a small executable that invokes IE and points it to my Start.Htm page...

    But, I still want to know the 'why'. [​IMG]

    BTW: I have been hand-coding...

    Methinks I'd better recheck my on-line web site with the newest Mozilla!
