Hi,

I am using a CMS system which generates an html page dynamically. I echo'd out the path it thinks it's using and I'm left with the following:

    /home/mysite/public_html/index.php
 
I have an applet class sitting at:

    public_html/test/applet.class

so shouldn't I be able to link to it directly in the page by doing:

    <applet code=test/applet.class width=400 height=400></applet>

I can't seem to resolve the path....

Thanks

Using the absolute path on the links will not help because only the server knows how to search for it. You need to use relative paths. Try:
$_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME']

EX:
<a href="<?php echo($_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME']) ?>">Some link </a>
