Re: Best way to use a header include file?

If the images are all in /images, then why bother with the ~ sign?
That's only for server controls anyway, so you have to remember to use /
in client stuff.

It would be easier to use /images for everything, as that will always
resolve to the images folder off the domain's root. No?

>> /anotherdir/someotherdir/yetanotherdir
>> "~/images/whatever.ext" will reference root/images
