Partial internet address
which points to a directory
in relation to the current
directory or file. When creating a link
in a website's code
, if just a filename is given without any other modifications, that is an indicator
to find that file within the current directory and link to it. Modifiers can be added to a relative URL which indicate that the file is found in a higher directory, or code can be added to indicate that the file is in a deeper directory. Relative URLs are often easier to maintain
than absolute URLs.
