WebStyler: Building the directory tree

The WebStyler program assumes that there is a strict division between our files, that is, files which are part of the web being built, and other files, which may be pointed at from within our web but over which we have no control.

Accordingly, all the files in the web must be in a single directory (the home directory), or in directories which are below the home directory in the Unix file tree.

WebStyler does not impose any particular structure on the subdirectories of the web's home directory. As a matter of fact, makes the work of rearranging subdirectories easier. Each directory below the home directory has a short name that other parts of the web can use to refer to it without worrying about where it actually lives.

When WebStyler is run, the current working directory must be the home directory.
