1. By having the Home Page and the Csuite Access pages in the same
directory, relative links down start with 'Directory/'.  To allow maximum
implementation flexibility, the design of a Home Page and the grouping of 
subject areas needs to be possible by the local site.  We just happen to 
have a set of XXX subject areas arranged on 7 pages.

2. In instructing an IPE in the use of relative links, it is very 
efficacious to be able to say:
	../	to get to Chebucto files in your subject area
	../../	to get to the Home and Access pages

to get to the Home Page of another IP on Chebucto

We also have the concept of


to get to files in
	../../icons		(there but little used)
	../../maps		(oh I wish)
