Root Relative Path - Question
Variant 1 : <a href="/index.html">Home</a>
Variant 2 : <a href="/">Home</a>
Will both of those variants have the same result, or one is preferred over the other?
Thank you in advance

When no page is specified, most webservers default to index.html. Other defaults include index.htm default.htm(l) home.htm(l) Depending on your purpose, it may be practical to use either the root or the default file specifically. Both are technically correct. Kr, Mat
