Ok, I guess. It would be a security violation to allow it? URLs like file://etc/passwd, file:///C:/Program%20Files/Gator/default.gat are allowed, right? Better safe than sorry? Thanks. Just asking for a bit more explanation. (Matti: no, my JS isn't disabled; I can load the URL, I just can't click on a link to it and get there.)
links to file://blah are only allowed if the document with the link itself is also laoded via file://
