../images.bg.gif takes you up a directory so you start there if your
directory is mysite/images/bg.gif.

I keep my CSS file in the root and then going down the tree is easy.
Versus coming up then down.  So my relative path is always down
grafs/autos/ford/trucks/rangermine/invranger.jpg from the CSS file.

../../images/bg.gif goes up two then down to the gif.
