Relative Directory References On MacIntosh?

The following code works a-ok on a Windows PC, but on a MacIntosh, the link
targets could not be found.

Something about expressing references to files/directories relative to current?

Something about the current directory not being the same?

--------------------------------
<div class="navList">
<p><a href="45thPix_Root.htm">45th Reunion Pictures</a></p>
<p><a href="Booklets\45thReunionBooklet.pdf">45th Reunion Booklet</a></p>
<p><a href="Booklets\40thReunionBooklet.pdf">40th Reunion Booklet</a></p>
<p><a href="40thPix_Root.htm">40th Reunion Pictures</a></p>
</div>
--------------------------------

Somebody has already pointed out that my slashes are backwards for HTML. I'll
try fixing them and try to find another Max...however that does not explain why
the first one didn't resolve.

Just guessing but try forward slash rather than back slash in the
addresses. The WEB uses forward slash and a back slash might work on a
PC but not on a Mac.

*nix variants are case sensitive. OS X is a BSD derivative. AFAIK case
insensitivity and \ as a path seperator are largely Windows-only quirks.

The default OS X filesystem is case-preserving but case-insensitive.

Some say the Wired doesn't have political borders like the real world,
but there are far too many nonsense-spouting anarchists or idiots who
think that pranks are a revolution.
