We may using the browser with its extensions to search, browse, import, and modify various card elements from different online repositories.

The author of derivative works will met a strange condition. If s/he obey the CC 2.0 attribution license , s/he should cited many resources of elements. It's almost impossible to cite each name of original providers on a small card.

The author points the webpage to their hard disk, we may correct this by referring to the hierarchy of website directories.

(W) file:///C:/folder1/floder2/bb/file.htm

From the menu of homepage, we may understand the hierarchy of website. For example, there are three directories, ex: aa, bb. So we correct as following,
(C) http://website.url/bb/file.htm

=== the transferring of 3rd website failed ===
Some blog will refer to external links but the transferring failed.
(W) http://website.url/


== Above methods are failed ==
Write an email to the author of that website :)
