Hi All. I have a browser question. A client called me about an unrelated 
question that led to this question of mine. He has a website/database at the 
university. He uses Word2K (I assume it's Office 2K) to produce and publish his 
web content. It by default uses a backslash instead of a forward slash to 
reference sites off his main page. I finally got IE to go to his pages, but I 
don't know what I changed. Mozilla cannot go there, and IE on MacOS X couldn't 
either. He says that around %5 of his collegues cannot reach his content. While 
playing around, I changed something--I'm bad for not documenting my 
changes--and gained access. So this is the question(s), what allows for the 
translation between Dos back slash and Unix forward slash in IE? Is there a 
similar change for Netscape and/or Mozilla?

To see his site, go to the following


see if you can get to his subsites (or whatever they're called).
