Linking files and documents
You can use the Property inspector and the Point-to-File icon to create links from an image, an object, or text to another document or file. For more information about using the site map to create links, see Modifying links in the site map.
Dreamweaver creates the links to other pages in your site using document-relative paths. You can also tell Dreamweaver to create new links using site root-relative paths.
Always save a new file before creating a document-relative path; a document-relative path is not valid without a definite starting point. If you create a document-relative path before saving the file, Dreamweaver temporarily uses an absolute path beginning with file:// until the file is saved; when you save the file, Dreamweaver converts the file:// path into a relative path.
