Hi,

1.1 says:

--
The syntax of a URI reference consists of:

	1. a unique URI (relative or absolute), optionally followed by
	2. a fragment identifier ("#" and what follows).

A relative URI is a syntactic abbreviation for an absolute URI.

This seems to be in conflict with RFC2396: there's no such thing as a
"relative URI". In the grammar, the term "relativeURI" does exist, but it
only appears as part of the definition of URI *references*, not URIs.
