Message-Id: <9502081738.AA17595@plato.ansa.co.uk> To: email@example.com Subject: Base URLs Date: Wed, 08 Feb 1995 17:38:49 +0000 From: Owen Rees <firstname.lastname@example.org> In draft-ietf-uri-relative-url-05.txt, "within Document Content" (3.1) overrides "within Message Headers" (3.2). Is there a reason for this order? I can think of reasons for putting these two the other way round, but not for this order. Typical servers generate the headers dynamically, but use stored document content. The precedence only matters when there is a base defined both in the document and in the headers, and the currently proposed order gives precedence to what I would expect to be the "older" information. I can forsee fixing up a server to issue Base: headers according to some mapping rule, and wanting to override what is in the document.
