Definitions for "Absolute Path Names"
Absolute path names indicate where the file is located, for example the absolute path name of this file which I am writing on my mac is as follows: HREF="///Macintosh HD/Desktop folder/proj.v2/glossy.html". This means that the file glossy.html is located on the Hard Disk. Note Absolute path names are not portable, so it makes it difficult to move the files to a web server.
