    In my webpage, I have two links that are identically declared; with the
    exception of the target they point at. The first link works, but the
    socond one does not. What makes it so interesting is that the first
    link points to a www page, but the second to a local URL
    [prayer_times\index.html]. Here is the code:
    <tr>
    <td width="100%" height="24" align="left">
    <font size="2"
    color="#FFFF00">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
    <a href="http://www.elsalvador.com" style="text-decoration:
    none">
    <font color="#FFFF00">El Diario de Hoy</font></a></font></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td width="100%" height="24" align="left">
    <font size="2"
    color="#FFFF00">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
    <a href="prayer_times\index.html" style="text-decoration:
    none">
    <font color="#FFFF00">Prayer times</font></a></font></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    Any help will be most welcomed.

    Switch that to <a href="prayer_times/index.html" style="text-decoration:
    none"> Notice the forward slash instead of a backslash.
