I'm laying out a new site and trying to figure out the best structure for the files.
From what I can gather relative links ("page1.html") are better than absolute links (http://www.mysite.com/page1.html") for performance reasons.

However I would also like to organize my site so that I have several subfolders with smaller numbers of pages in them. The problem I see here is that with using relative links this could get very confusing. Also, you would have to use absolute links anyways to get to folders "above" you in the directory structure.

So what's it going to be? Relative or absolute? I'd prefer not to use both...
