/ "Roy T. Fielding" <fielding@apache.org> was heard to say:
| Since this example is an http URI, it can easily be
|
|     http://www.foo.com/bar/baz.jar/COM/foo/Quux.xml#foo

| HTTP servers do not contain files.

Yeah, but Jar files are often accessed with other protocols and I
imagine that a uniform mechanism was desired (despite the fact that I
work for Sun, the jar: scheme predates my involvement so I don't speak
with any authority. But I will investigate).

Using the model above would fall down rather badly for

  file:///bar/baz.jar/COM/foo/Quux.xml#foo

                                        Be seeing you,
