Now you got it!

Well, what I'm actually implementing is support for single file or multiple selection right click to bring up a dialog to show you which stylesheets are in the selected html files and to allow you to include/exclude them and in what order. Its about half-way done so I'll have to dig up the code and finish it off

A simple tick on/off like Add semantics doesn't work since the order of stylesheets is important in files. Using a set as a default for new files is a possibility.

Great, every time we come up with something, you are already working on it.

An epub is basically a zipped folder of htm,css,images etc. and opf,ncx etc.. Some have sub-folders containing the various elements.

When using Sigil it automagically creates the correct sub-folder structure (inside the epub) and moves all parts to their correct paths, and updates the necessary paths in those files, so it becomes a fully compliant correct epub (most work anyway, but ignore the correct sub-folder structure).

It's this internal structure we are talking about when referring to Styles folder etc., thus when a (x)html file is using any css or image file thats why it needs the ../ to navigate to the root folder then the folder required 'Styles' or 'Images', so a link reference would then become '../Styles/filename.css' or '../Images/filename.jpg'

Also as said by other this link reference is case-sensitive.

THANKS so much for the great info! I was wondering how I could see "inside" the ePub file - didn't know it was just a zip file! Y'all are wonderful!

It is a Zipped file with special rules on how it is assembled.
It is easy to view (and discard) contents, but difficult to rebuild without using EPUB tools or having knowledge..
