Thanks to Jim and David. I've not made much progress though. I changed my

Rendering the site gives a list of URLs which accurately reflect the site 
structure, and these URLs represent real html files. So for instance:
becomes ,


Where does that 'dio' come from? Is this something to do with the way I've 
set up the folder and url for static rendering in the Control Panel?

Any suggestions?
