Why not? The file itself is outside the root. In any case the finished product 
will use tokens instead of filenames. While I am working out the bugs it is 
easier to use filenames. I use an incremental approach to programming (and have 
used that approach ever since I moved from batch programming to time-shared 
terminals over 40 years ago).

That is precisely what I indicated that I was doing, using 
&_SERVER["DOCUMENT_ROOT"], and then using truncation and concatenation.
