I'm building my new site and for this one, instead of using the full url (http://www.mydomain.com/page/name.htm), I use "../" (../page/name.htm)

is it ok? will search engine able to crawl pages that are linked to current page in above style?

Yes It's OK as long as you specify a base href [w3schools.com]. You pages will spidered.

I include the full file path in a personal belief if the content is used elsewhere, the links will return the user to me.
