RE: Opening a document on a server

I thought that was supposed to work, but last time I tried, I failed. The format //someServer/someDirectory/someFile.xml is a Windows UNC filename: a remote file in the sense that it belongs to the filestore of a machine other than the client. The RFCs are pretty unhelpful about how this case should be represented using a URI in the "file" scheme, but the "file:////" prefix seems to be emerging as the accepted answer. It's probably best treated as implementation-dependent, though. Michael Kay http://www.saxonica.com/
