A Revised Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
directories. This draft is a work item of the Uniform Resource Identifiers 
Working Group of the IETF.

A Uniform Resource Locator (URL) is a compact representation of the 
location and access method for a resource available via the Internet. When 
embedded within a base document, a URL in its absolute form may contain a 
great deal of information which is already known from the context of that 
base document's retrieval, including the scheme, network location, and 
parts of the url-path.  In situations where the base URL is well-defined 
and known to the parser (human or machine) it is useful to be able to embed
URL references which inherit that context rather than re-specifying it in 
every instance.  This document defines the syntax and semantics for such 
Relative Uniform Resource Locators.

Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-uri-relative-url-03.txt".
NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
      MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
      feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
      command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
      a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
      exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
      "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split
      up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
      how to manipulate these messages.
For questions, please mail to Internet-Drafts@cnri.reston.va.us.

Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader 
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
of the Internet-Draft.
