What is the proper syntax for a file: scheme? I have seen
file:///dir/subdir/file, but I don't understand why there are three slashes
after the initial colon.

Is there anyway to know whether or not the user intends that the beginning
of the path is a physical disk? On a Mac, this matters. On Unix, it's not a
problem, obviously. I expect the answer is "no, other than server
convention".

regards,
