rel and absolute.

I'm working with a map generated by Coraldraw 10.
All the paths are given in relative form, and I need 
to convert to absolute for local use.

I'm getting confused with the quadratic bezier form.

<path  d="M 10 10 l 10,10  c 0,20   40,0   0,-20" style='stroke:black;
 <path d="M 10 10 L 20,20  C 20,40  60,40  60,20"
       style="stroke: red; fill:none"/>

I thought (yes I know:-) that the above were equivalent.
Neither batik nor Adobe agree with me <grin/>.

If I change the c and C to l and L then they overlap.
Is there something special about the endpoint of the bezier?
I.e. its always absolute?

Regards DaveP
