裏面に記述するURLは接待バスにする必要があります

What is ¥"絶対バス¥"? Is anyone familiar with this term? I assumed it might mean data bus, but I don¥'t know if I¥'m right.

Thanx

absolute address (i.e. beginning with http://)
Explanation:
Shouldn't that be パース = path and not バス?If so then I go for absolute address meaning starting with http://
and not just the end part of a URL.

absolute pathname


Explanation:
Sorry, that should be パス not パースand
"absolute pathname" (which has the same meaning as what I just said) would be better. See the reference below which explains things perfectly.

absolute path


Explanation:
パスis correct, not パース
It refers to any absolute path, as opposed to relative path. It does not necessarily refer to http - it can also be something like C:¥parent_directory¥child_directory¥file1

absolute path


Explanation:
An absolute path has nothing to do with the http:// prefix. It is a non-relative one. In Unix, on which HTML is based, an absolute file path on a local machine starts with a forward slash (e.g., /home/gifs....). MS-DOS adds a drive letter and uses backword slashes (e.g. c:¥windows¥temp).

Examples of relative HTML paths include HREF="gif/hotbabe.jpg" and HREF="../../pix/gif/button.gif".

BTW, in Japanese, "path" is パス, the same as "pass", not パース.
