Stupid question #2.
Can a Web Viewer (Google Maps in my case) be made to work with IWP? I have a button/script that does the same thing in a new tab or window, but at this stage of implementation (this is a speedy one-off project with a finite life of some months for everyone involved and needs to get in the air ASAP) it would be easier to have a single, consistent UI for both FMP client users (if any) and IWP users (tens to start with.)
Stupid question #3:
If my client's employees insert documents & images in their local FMP "Web" folders as References, are the links retained when the contents of the said folders are copied to the respective FMP Server folder?
Like this: Jack & Amy have referenced CAD/GIS-files, John & Jill Word-files & PDFs, Bruce & Jason PNGs & TIFFs locally to folders Web/GIS, Web/Word, Web/PDF and Web/Images. The contents of local folders are copied to the FMPS/Web -folder. What happens?
Obviously this forum is not a place for getting answers to questions: no-one knows anything.
There are IWP guides that can be useful when beginning.
A standard Google will bring them up
FMDOTCOM IWP Overview
FileMaker 11 Instant Web Publishing Guide

When scripting for IWP and selecting script steps on the left side be sure to check 'web compatible' at the bottom of the left side.
It will gray out those which are not compatible.
Question #1 See Above
No, not in my experience.
Question #3 No, not without some work. Has to do with Relative and Absolute filepaths https://www.google.com/search?q=filemaker+filepaths

I had found some, but not all, those links.
Q3: This is a worry. One would have thought that the Web folder would be automatically be a relative path to be used.
