Hi Alain,

I tried various versions of the file: link with or without the // etc etc. All 
were seen as links by Acrobat reader, but none resulted in it opening a file in 
my browser. The only successes I had were absolute paths. On windows the 
successful links always asked two permissions, one from acrobat reader and then 
another from windows. The unsuccessful attempst always asked just one question 
(from acrobat reader). I suspect it may be impossible to get the relative links 
to work.
