The problem may be due to the fact that my environment is Apache Unix.

I spent about two hours today pouring over the php on-line manual 
"include" spec and trying dozens of combinations.

There must be at least 20 user contributed notes at the bottom.

It is incredible that such a basic php function should be so obtuse and 
ill defined.

I'm going to give your other suggestion a try tomorrow.

Thanks again....
