Once I have one file in folder html or sub-html, I then only have to dupliate it since the links are correct.
Also: I suppose I should point out that I tend to map out my website in the folder structure so I can wrap my mind around the organization before getting lost in it.
In the early days of web page development, using tables for page layout was standard operating procedure. Reliable, hierarchical navigation menu systems did not exist, so it was easier for a developer to create multiple templates for various sections of a website with tables for links.
For example, one template might cover category pages, while another would cover catalog pages.
This allows me to only have to setup/update the URL's for each new webpage in a new folder rather than creating a new file from scratch in each folder and updating the links again and again.
Here is an image depicting each html file linking to the file and how the linking differs.
Often these sites have outdated code or are badly in need of an upgrade.
For years, Dreamweaver has used templates to allow an entire site to be updated at once simply by making changes to a master page.
If you want to copy a page and put into a folder, in other words change the location, you must, CLICK and DRAG the file to the new folder.
DO NOT COPY and PASTE the file into another folder. When you CLICK and DRAG, Dreamweaver knows to update all the links; Except for inline style image URL locations.

Dreamweaver’s productivity tools and site-management capabilities are among its most useful features for a busy designer. An untitled dialog appears, asking whether you want to update links. Since the template is saved in a subfolder, updating the links in the code is necessary so that they will continue to work properly when you create child pages later.
