I am trying to find our the 'best' way to create links within pages other

pages, graphic etc. Web server is IIS 5. Any suggestions help much

appreciated.

Here are example paths to the files:

1) Full URL- http://www.mydomain.com/pagename.html

2) IP address - 211.123.123.321/pagename.com

3) Directory path such as:

../images/buttons/button1.gif

or

pagename.html

or

../otherwebsite/index.html (and images and other pages linked to this such

as)

pageone.html

images/buttons/button1.gif

My questions are, which is faster (I suspect no.3) but what kind of extra

load is put on the server if the full IP or URL is used?

Thanks,

Thanks, I have experimented a bit and am using local for all files and graphics not containing andy db forms. Then the URL (or IP) for links from the form to the other pages on the site. If I do not do this, FMP starts to serve all the pages, nto IIS. And FMP is much slower than IIS at this.

So basically, using FMP just for the forms, which are the front end to the db.

Anyone else got any ideas or suggestions on this?

Thanks
