Try experimenting with a base URL using a http scheme.

If you look closely at the source, you will see that function rebase 
will set both document.baseURI and the href element on the base element. 
  The latter is sufficent for non-IE browsers.  I had to add the former 
to get IE working.

But, as you undoubtedly have noted, unknown base schemes seem to cause 
IE too ignore the base URL entirely.
