Why is index.html needed on the article.html page nav?

<li><a href="../../index.html#about">About</a></li>

This also works as:

<li><a href="../../#about">About</a></li>

is there a reason you include it?

1 Answer

it will go to #about inside index.html page rather than search for #about in the current page. Nav will be available in all pages, not just index page - therefore we must specify what page #about is in.
