      in answer to my post and reply..maybe the idea to change the folder
      name was just for thinkin too hard. ..
      if i try to change the folder name, it is read-only, anyway, here is
      what it looks like for the link to on all the pages which work well in
      the original folder, doesn't look like a folder is accessed (I used a
      css template from www.ssi-developer.net -btw- I didn't create the
      original layout and folders.
      :
      <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"
      href="3c-lcrc-static-layout.css" />
      <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"
      href="3c-lcrc-static-presentation.css" />



      and that is the name of the files too.. i got a little confused
      thinking at first maybe the problem was the folder because the
      original folder has the same name as 3c-lcrc-static. I just put a lot
      of stuff in the original folder so I thought if I moved just the stuff
      needed for the website to a different folder I'd be able to see it all
      much easier for the ftp upload (another thing I have never used
      before!) even so, I have no idea yet if maybe i can just upload from
      the original folder and it will all work out well, but this thing is
      bothering me anyway.

        I did use relative links, and I did save them as .html first thing as
        well. And also after I moved ALL the needed web files into a new
        folder what happens is.. all the text shows and links do take me to
        the proper pages, they DO work. Images are there, it's just that
        everything is placed wrong, like linear to the side or cast out into
        the middle where it does not belong. Presentation styles are no longer
        used either. So it is layout and presentation that is a mess, not
        being read. Not only is it not being read, but if I open the those
        files, it is all suddenly in paragraph form instead of the nice neat
        easy to read placement it has in the original, but maybe that is
        normal, unsure, I don't like it though,lol. I AM very new to this,
        it's taken me a long time to get this far in part for all the little
        mistakes and experimenting, this could be a very simple mistake on my
        part, but I cannot figure it out and I hate to upload to the website
        and find a mess there..

        Thanks for your help. If you still want me to copy/paste a little let
        me know.. but the links are working. Everything seems right .. ALMOST :)

            Thanks Lotta, and don't worry, nothing is too simplistic, I know it's
            a simple error somewhere, but feels like looking for a needle in a
            haystack.
            What I did was move everything (Can't 'think' of anything i missed!) I
            needed to a new folder, only NoteTab files, and images, no java or any
            other scripting . So far I have never even created an absolute
            pathname, I kept everything real simple, which is good, cause nothing
            has been THAT simple. Anyway, every little bit of info helps me
            somewhere, sometime, I learn that too. Thanks, I'll take ANY idea.

            ... No, nothing is on the server yet. I may give that a go soon though, just to see what happens. Here s a snippet of the text in NoteTab .. all the links

              No, nothing is on the server yet. I may give that a go soon though,
              just to see what happens.
              Here's a snippet of the text in NoteTab .. all the links work on the
              entire website.
              I hope this shows up in the orderly fashion I copy/pasted.
