That's not the only problem. Amaya also cannot handle relative addresses
and is always looking for files in the root directory:

In the document c:\test\index.html there is a link to a file in the same
directory: <A HREF="file1.html">file1</A>. Amaya is not looking for
c:\test\file1.html, but for c:\file1.html and therefore cannot find the

Maybe this is also the reason why Amaya doesn't display images (when I
place an image in the root, it is displayed correct).
