Thanks Hakan

I should have said I am using TortoiseSVN and didn't see a Move option.
There was a relocate but it there was a scary warning.

As it happens, I have done the deed manually. It was quite tricky
because this particular project is a static website I am reworking for a
client (it isn't my specialty) using Dreamweaver 4.

If you move or rename directories or files *in* the Dreamweaver window,
it carefully rewrites any necessary changes throughout the site. I rely
on that to refactor mercilessly.

I just deleted the paragraph I wrote describing what I did because it
got so convoluted even I didn't understand what I'd written. I must have
got it right by sheer good luck rather than skill and logic.

Thanks again
