Thanks.  The other maps worked outside of a sub directory (when converted
for Daves system) and gave the same error before conversion.  So I'm hoping
It'll work when instaled.  If not, well at least they all reference the
same central map and Gif.

I really wish I could test it on my system before I upload it.  Or even
completly test it on Daves before Its uploaded to LIT.  (The Map standards
need to get settled in HTML land.)
