I read this thread of messages from several years ago, but still could
not find an answer to the problem. In both IE 7 and Firefox 3.5, a
FILE:// url works fine if typed directly into the browser, but not if
its on a Pmwiki page. Any solutions?

This sort of thing also happens with IE and a few other browsers --
namely, the browser processes a file:-url differently if typed in
an address bar versus coming from the markup of an HTML page. I don't
know why this is, but it just is. :-)
