Subject: Re: linking html forms

Another option is to create links to local documents, by defining
hyperlinks to documents which reside on the same WWW server.  The
general form of such a link is:

<A HREF="/path-to-file/filename">link-text</A>
This displays link-text as a link.  When selected, the file filename
will be loaded.  In the simplest case, filename will be another HTML
document in the same directory as the current one, and the link appears
as:

<A HREF="other-file.html">link-text</A>

When the destination file is specifies in the manner of these two
examples, this known as a partial hypertext reference.  A partial ref.
works if you are loading a local document(tha is on the same WWW server
as the source of the link).  The browser does not need to search for the
name of the server; it is assumed to be the local server.

If you are not familiar with any of the above email me for more info.

Good luck
