what is the code i put in an  a href tag to point backwards in my folder structure.

Example:

if i had the following folder structure on my webserver

main_folder   which had 2 folders in side it
             Let call them Images and Video

Inside the images folder lets say there is one more folder called GALLERY

and inside the gallery folder is an html page we will call three_folders_deep.html
 
so from my index page which is found in main folder i can link to the three_folders_deep.html page by simply putting in

<a= href"image/gallery/three_folders_deep.html>

With me so far I hope. Okay so my quesiton is that if im coding the links for the three_folders_deep.html page and i want to link back to other index pages or pictures found in the main_folder (i.e 2 folders backwards from where we are now)  what would the structure look like

you can use a simple <a href> tag to show me an example thanks you

The leading slash instructs the browser to start from the top-most folder. So no matter how deeply neested your current page is what I gave you should always find the image (if you did not mistyped the name).
