<A> tag and https:

    Do I have to use a fully qualified url when putting an <A HREF=> tag
    on my web page?

    I wish I could do this :
    <a href="https://[pagetitle].asp">[pagetitle]</a>

    or:
    <a href="[pagetitle].asp:443">[pagetitle]</a>

    or something else. It seems to get to the secure port it wants the
    full url with domain and everything.

    Any ideas on how to simplify the link?

    Yes -- if you're linking to the same server, different port, you will need
    to include the protocol and domain name. Though you can use server-side
    functions to calculate those dynamically.
