When creating web pages in PAF version 5.x any individuals that are repeated within a report have links that say Printed as #xxxx. Those links are created with absolute addresses rather than relative addresses. For example a normal link appears as <href="pafg01.htm#xxxx">. Links on "repeated" individuals (occurs when cousins marry) are generated as <href="C:\Program Files\FamilySearch\Paf5\web\pursifull\pafg11.htm#xxx">. When the files are uploaded this causes 404 Page not found errors. My HTML editor has mult-file search and replace which fixes the problem but it is tedious to do over and over.
