    | Paths using dots can also be useful for checking pages
    | and sites without using a web server. (Flat HTML) sites
    | using relative paths can be run directly in a browser,
    | whereas ones using absolute paths can't.

Thanks Mark, by dots did you mean "../../" kind of stuff? Or "./" as

The two dots makes life a little too complicated on the webserver side
for me. And the single dot doesn't work on the filesystem. So I guess
"/" is still the best?
