    Question about html/css and linking local files a question of security.
    I'm sorry for this total noob question, but I'd rather be safe than sorry. (ive only been coding for like 2 weeks)
    I am making a joke website for my brothers birthday using notepad++ and my limited knowledge. It won't ever be a live website and only he will have access to it.
    I am currently in the process of coding the links to some local files. I know chrome and Firefox don't allow you to link to local files for obvious security reasons. There are workarounds that I haven't tried because I want to make sure that I won't be putting my files and computer at a higher risk because I'm linking to local files through my fake website.
    Any advice is greatly appreciated.
    Thank you in advance.

    What do you mean by linking local files.

    Are you trying to utilize style sheets, create download links, insert images, etc.

    Often in html using the <a href tag, you can link protocols, document anchors, and both relative and absolute URL's.

    Here is a good rundown.
