Reading URL for link, relative links area normal and desirable things
(except when used in contexts that specify that absolute ones must
be used).

If you are currently viewing, and you see
anotherpage.html, that is a relative link to:
../index.html is a relative link to:, etc (".." means the same as in
Unix and MS operating systems - move up a directory level).   This means
that the links within the site are independent of where the site is
actually held - you can have the site in a subdirectory on your hard
disk and all the links will still be consistent.

You can also have a halfway house in which /index.html means, from anywhere in the site.

It's generally bad practice for links within a site to be anything
but relative.
