    This is sort of html related. I have been working on a website for the past few months, and it works perfectly fine on my Windows XP IIS server. Today I uploaded my website to, and it has been nothing but a pain in the *** to get working right.

    The problem is I use syntax like this for my IIS server.

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/logo.css" type="text/css" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/indexstyle.css" type="text/css" />

    notice the "/" before the name of the file. This indicates to look for the file on the root directory. I use these two style sheets on all my webpages, some of which are a few directories down, so it points to the root, and loads it up. The asp host can't handle this, and only works when I remove the "/", which is alright for files in the same directory as the style sheets but messes everything up for ones that are not.

    The second problem is I use syntax like this

    <!-- For Overall Layout, and Menu modify the files listed below -->
    <!--#include file="../../logo.asp"-->
    <!--#include file="../../header.asp"-->
    <!-- End -->

    Notice the ../../ is used to tell the file to look two directories up, and load up that file. I use include file so I only have to edit those files if I want to change some overall appearence of my site. The asp provider does not allow the ../ syntax for some reason.

    What would you guys recommend I do? Will I encounter these problems with every ASP provider I find? Any help is appreciated.
