Relative Path Example

 * Create and output an external custom CSS file just for this web page.
 * The custom CSS file will be OUTPUT to a css/ subdirectory, so when we
 * LINK to a background image within the custom css file, we want the
 * link to be relative to where the custom CSS file will be located, not
 * relative to where this web page that we are publishing.
header { height: 80px; background: url(#LINK(Image,HeaderBg)); }
    <title>Example Web Page</title>
    <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="$CSSFile" />
     <h1>Example Web Page</h1>
     <p>The cScript template creates and references
