In Part 5 of index.php, there are references
to "ABSOLUTE URLs from the server root"

I would have called these REALATIVE URLs (from the
server root), myself!

Absolute urls begin with http://

Confused me anyway :-)

    I think the "absolute" is there to distinguish them from
    URLS which are expressed relative to the current URL.

    I think we agree that 'images/png.png' is a 'relative' UR,
    and that 'http://path.to.your/wiki/images/png.png' is an
    'absolute ' URL.

    Is there a better name for URLs such as
    '/wiki/images/png.png' which include the complete path from
    the server root.

    I guess you're right. They are really relative URLs too.

    In any case, I would think that the example defines
    (commented out) would be enough to avoid too much confusion.

    I'll go s/absolute/relative/ now, anyway.
