User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030401 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030401 Stylesheets are present in /styles dir (drive is intentionally omitted). <head> <link href="/styles/swdev.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"> <link href="/styles/private_header.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"> </head> MSIE uses the css correctly, Mozilla (and Opera ;-), don't use them. The same problem is present for images link too (e.g. <img src="/Images/back.gif">, but it is not present for links to *current* dir, that is when stylesheets and img are in the current dir. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. put css and images in c:\StyleImg 2. create an html page on the same drive, e.g. in c:\test 3. include the css and the img in the page using absolute path without drive, /styleimg/test.css and /styleimg/test.png Actual Results: The image is now viewed and css not used Expected Results: Show the image and use the css. I would expact that the "/" path (root) is internally expanded to <same_drive_of_the_html_page>\, i.e. c:\ When the document is placed on the web, the / path should be expanded to the web root. At least this is the behaviour with MSIE ;-) Both browser and composer are affected by this. I currently use a wysiwyg editor and than publish pages, and to share icons and stylesheets among the tons of documents I found this simple way, i.e. to put shared css and images in a couple of dirs referenced from root (either website root or disk root). I would like to use composer, which is easy and powerful at the same time and seems to generate a clean html code, but I'm blocked because of this behaviour. I also use Linux mdk (Mozilla 1.3), and there is identical problem.
> I would expact that the "/" path (root) is internally expanded to > <same_drive_of_the_html_page>\, i.e. c:\ That's in fact exactly NOT what the URL specification says should happen. Mozilla and Opera follow the url spec, IE does its little windows-centric thing.... /c|/ is what c:\ would be as a url. (Consider that it makes no sense for /d| to not be a sibling of /image.gif .)
