Thanks. I've now got Webjames successfully serving local pages, and
obeying those "absolute" links -- /logo.gif and /paper.jpg (the
background pattern) which appear on every page of the site.
I have also discovered that simply putting favicon.ico in the root
directory causes that icon to appear beside the URL automagically:
absolutely no extra code at all is required in the HTML.
One problem still has me scratching my head:
- Netsurf displays the pages served up via Webjames perfectly,
except that it is NOT obeying the stylesheet (which is /2018.css )
even though the Webjames log records a GET success for the CSS file
just as it did for the logo and paper and favicon.
- Yet when Netsurf fetches the identical page from my ISP's server,
it DOES obey the CSS.
Same problem for pages farther out the directory tree. All pages now
specify /2018.css in handy "absolute" shortform.
