if i have a .html file in a sub sub folder and using the <link> tag, i would like to reference to a css file which is in the root folder, is ../../file.css the only way to reference it, or is there any other command which can take you directly to the root folder instead of ../../ ?

Thank you

@ToonMarinerJan 14.2007 — in html if you start any href with / that means site root.

so if you css is in ROOT/global/style/screen.css

then using

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/global/style/screen.css" media="screen" />

on ANY page in your site will grab the correct file.

@CassiusauthorJan 14.2007 — thx for your reply. So if the things is the other way round, that is the css file is in the root folder and the html file is in sub folders would /main.css will do rather than ../../main.css?
