Problem - Serving web pages on the desktop (SimpleHTTPServer)

Hi there,

Perhaps someone can help me. For some reason, when my Python script
runs and loads an HTML page in a new browser window at the local host
(desktop), the links to my stylesheet and all the images are broken. I
did check the HTML file by itself...everything loaded fine ;)

Here's my script:
--------------------
# File: webbrowser-test.py

import webbrowser, SimpleHTTPServer
from StringIO import StringIO

f=open('testpage.html', 'rb')
myPage = f.read()

class MyRequestHandler(SimpleHTTPServer.SimpleHTTPRequestHandler):
    def send_head(self):
        self.send_response(200)
        self.send_header("Content-type", "text/html")
        self.end_headers()
        return StringIO(myPage)
webbrowser.open("http://127.0.0.1:8000", new=0, autoraise=1)
SimpleHTTPServer.test(MyRequestHandler)

--------------------

Here's my sample directory:
---------------------------------
webbrowser-test.py
testpage.html
m_files/
|_____stylesheet.css
|_____logo.gif
--------------------------------

Thanks for having a look. My next step is to process form input using
AJAX. I'll post working snippets of code here as I progress.

Ben
