+Links to other Worg pages should have the following format:
+: [[][Worg's home page]]
+This link will converted to a relative html link on export that looks
+like this:
+[[][Worg's home page]]
+The filename should be a relative path. Thus, if you are creating a
+link to the index from within the org-tutorials directory, you should
+enter the path as follows:
+: [[file:../][Worg's home page]]
+The easiest way to create links to files is by typing C-c C-l while
+editing an org file. This will prompt you for both components of the
+link. (Be sure to enter "file:" before the path; this indicates the
+type of link.) 
+To enter file links more easily, you can simply type C-u C-c C-l. This
+will allow you to locate the file using emacs' built-in completion
+facilities and will automatically add the "file:" prefix. 
+One note of caution here: the path of the resulting link created
+depends on the setting of org-link-file-path-type. To ensure that you
+always use relative links, you can add the following to your .emacs:
+(setq org-link-file-path-type 'relative)
