Comp Gurus: How do I know I'm using a relative hyperlink over an absolute one?

My teacher is ridiculous and wants us to have relative hyperlinks in our power point presentation.

Only problem is he never explained the difference.

How do I make sure all my hyperlinks are relative in my presentation?

If anyone can help, I would appareciate it.

An absolute link is the full path of the link, for example http://www.chiefsplanet.com/index.html. A relative link is the path specified from the current location. So say the current location was http://www.chiefsplanet.com, then index.html would be a relative link.

Hope this helps.

Also, here is a little info on the two.

But what if it's a hyperlink that connects to something on my computer instead of the web?

Then it would just say blah.xls or \spreadsheets\blah.xls.

The full path would be C:\foo\bar\spreadsheets\blah.xls

Relative means relative to the current directory. So, if you are on the page:

/powerpoint/project/firstpage.html

and you wanted to link to

/powerpoint/project/images/bigassgraphic.jpg

a relativle link would look like:

images/bigassgraphic.jpg

Ok, I get it now. Instead of labeling the whole path, just make sure it's in the folder I'm burning onto a CD.

I have to make sure this is Mac and IBM compatible, how will I know it is? I don't have a Mac to try it on.

PowerPoint is available on both platforms -- you should've had too much trouble with the comptability of your presentation.

However, you do need to make sure you are burning the disc in a format both can read...
