Why don't my links/images/audio work after I Publish?

Q: I created my webpage and when I Preview the page and everything works fine. However, when I Publish my site to my server things don't work - what's up with that?

A: The most common reason that could cause your objects to work when you Preview, but not appear once you have Published your site to your webhost are your file names. Web servers are quite finicky when it comes to naming files. Some of the things that can get you into trouble are the use of caps, the use of spaces in the name, and the use of special characters. So, if your file is named something like this:
- My File#@#
try renaming it to -
- myfile

- Derry
