In the index.html file, if you were to use ../ in the links
for the Linux docs, instead of a file:/usr/doc/ URL, the
file would still work for those at the console of the Linux
machine. However, those of us who use Linux machines as
servers would also be able to use the page.

I place an alias in my Apache such as:

Alias /rhl /usr/doc/

as a way to read the documentation via a web browser on
another system. If the suggested alteration were made to the
index.html file, that file would be useful as a top-level
page even for setups like mine.

Thank you for your suggestion. It has been noted and will be passed on
to a developer for further review.
Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1999-02-10 13:33:59 EST
Changed for next version.  There are arguments both ways -- with
the absolute paths, the document still works even if it is moved
elsewhere in the file hierarchy.  But I think that the arguments
are stronger for relative paths, so I've changed it.
