It goes back to the fact that you're using a Web server to serve these
documents. The Apache document root is configured on your machine as
/Library/WebServer/Documents. This directory will be served as the root
of your Web site.
Here's a snippet from the Apache documentation:
"In deciding what file to serve for a given request, Apache's default
behavior is to take the URL-Path for the request (the part of the URL
following the hostname and port) and add it to the end of the
DocumentRoot specified in your configuration files. Therefore, the
files and directories underneath the DocumentRoot make up the basic
document tree which will be visible from the web. "
As an example, imagine you've got a file in your Web server document
root called myFile.html. The file will be located in
/Library/WebServer/Documents/. Apache will respond to requests for this
file at the following your: http://www.yourdomainname.com/myFile.html.
