Hi
This follows on from question 22578710 where a hyperlink need to look like a button.

I'd like the link <input type="button" value="Return to Main" onclick="location.href='/Default.aspx';" />

to be the same location as what ~/Default.aspx would generate, but ~/Default.aspx doesn't work. Neither does ../Default.aspx or ./Default.aspx - it takes me to root not a level down

(alteratively a solution with ASP.net hyperlink styled like a hyperlink would do)

Thank-you in advance

This is how you should define a LinkButton in asp.net:

<asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButton2" runat="server" PostBackUrl="../default.aspx">LinkButton</asp:LinkButton>

because the it doesn't look flat?

Just set the background color, you won't get this 3D style anymore...

forget what i said.  It apply to asp:button... not linkbutton.

Use an ASP:BUTTON like this:
<asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button" />

and in the code-behind you can do this:
    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Page.Response.Redirect("../default.aspx")
    End Sub
