Do I understand this correctly:

a) politicaltransformation.org is hosted on a remote site?
b) you are expecting the remote site to understand a path on your local machine?
c) you are further expecting the wiki software to deliver a file to a
user by cross-loading it from your local machine?

Let me know if that's the situation so I can respond.
