It's not a very complete definition.  It seems to assume that the
base URI is a prefix of the to-be-relativized URI.  That works for

   http://x.y/text/foo.html - http://x.y/text/ -> foo.html

but not for

   http://x.y/text/foo.html - http://x.y/text/bar.html -> foo.html

let alone

   http://x.y/images/foo.html - http://x.y/text/bar.html -> ../images/foo.html
