Actually, it really isn't RFC2396 (which specs only the general URI syntax). One big problem here is that RFC2396 obsoletes RFC1738 (which *did* attempt to define the file: schema) without updating that part as well. I think that there's now a new activity to get the file: URI scheme specced in a new RFC, though. -- <green/>bytes GmbH -- http://www.greenbytes.de -- tel:+492512807760
