simple html question

There is no HTML sequence to do that. You can do it in one of two ways:

1. Some web servers will show a directory listing if you point them at a 
directory with no file named index.html or any other default page name 
that the web server uses. On an Apache server, this will be true if your 
server configuration includes the Indexes option, and the default file 
names are listed under a tag DirectoryIndex in httpd.conf. So a URL like would work.

2. You can make a web page containing links to every file that you want 
people to be able to download. If you go this route, you have to update 
the page every time you add or delete a file.
