    It might be very beneficial to get the root directory of the web-server. This way, you can basically just knock off this part of the file names and use an absolute path on the webserver. If you wanted it to be relative, I think you would need to StringTokenize it and look for the common part of the path and generate a relative path based on that. This isn't really hard, but I think that knowing the root directory of the webserver would be useful for a lot of other things as well, so I think that the first solution would be the way to go.

    Hope this helps.
