Hi John,

Greenstone should handle internal links correctly, provided that the links in
the HTML are relative, and the organisation of the documents in the import
folder matches the organisation of the website.

You should check that the links in the HTML files in the import folder are
relative, not absolute. If you choose "Save As" from a web browser it will save
the HTML files with absolute links. To get files with relative links you need
to use mirroring software like wget instead.

Version 2.52 of the GLI has a new "Mirror" pane which uses wget to download the
pages of a website. You might like to try using this to get the source
documents for your collection.
