When we checked out M12 under Linux against our WWW site, we discovered what could be a problem with Mozilla's operation. Our site (as of 11:00a CST, 1-17-00) had a minor variance from the spec in our HTML content that current and past versions of the popular browsers support- we're correcting it on the site so you will need to rig a test site to verify. This variance was in the formatting of an absolute URL; it was of the format "//www.passkey.net/foo/bar.gif". The browser does not correctly load the images or anything else for that matter. Using Netscape 4.5, IE 4.X or later, or the latest version of Opera on various platforms, the site renders as we intended. Could it be set up to make an assumption about the URL when it's formatted like this (such as assuming that the malformed URL is using the server protocol of the page just fetched...)?

Changing component and re-assigning to network folks
Jud: Assigning this one to you. I'm not sure whether this is a webshell thing, makeabsolute, or a url parsing problem.
