Good.  The point is that the script knows how to find itself because
Apache tells it where it is when Apache runs the script.

I don't know style sheets very well -- I have spent hours trying to
figure out why something doesn't work.  I wish there was a browser
feature to explain how it decides what style to use and how it came to
that choice.  That would make debugging much easier.

Are any styles applied to the <dd> tags?
