OK, funny description, I know. Here is what it should tell: Lets say you have an access limited site with an auth realm http://my.site.com/ an an "inner" realm http://my.site.com/somerealm/ (e.g. for a certain sub-group of the first realm's users). When diretctly going to the URL http://my.site.com/somerealm/ without authenticating at http://my.site.com/, we have the following problem: If the page http://my.site.com/somerealm/ (or it's sub pages) links a style sheets (maybe also images?) from somewhere outside the realm , e.g. http://my.site.com/images/..., mozilla won't load the linked resources. The consequence is that one has to go one level up manually in order to authenticate against the outer realm. Netscape 4 and IE (any) behave differently. I guess they transparantly apply the given username/password for the outer realm in order to load the linked recources. To me, this makes total sense.
