Well, firstly, you can put $-substitutions in the <!--file:...->
directive, so you can define whatever path variables you like.

At present there's no predefined variable for the location of the
"pub/" or "pub/skins" directory, because things just start to get
messy when one does that.  But I'm open for suggestions.

Set your display function (or variable) to output the full link if
LastModifiedBy is not empty:

   <a class='authorlink' href='$ScriptUrl/$AuthorGroup/$LastModifiedBy'>
