How-to reference an image in another folder?

Last Modified: 2013-12-25
I have an Apache-server with images in a folder called "Images" near the root of the webserver (www/images).
Now I have folder tree with folders containing header-files with references to images in the images folder.
(An example:  www/Info/Documents/Bills. In the 'Info'-folder I have a file called "header.htm" which has a reference to
an image called "companylogo.gif". The URI created by Word 2003 is <a href="../images/companylogo.gif" and that works fine).

But when I try to reference the same image-file from the 'Bills'-folder with URI <a href="../../../images/companylogo.gif" I get an 404 error when I try to show that image. Why ?
