I am seeing some confusing behaviour with file:/// URLs: a very simple HTML file with that type of link works as expected (opens the nominated folder) when loading it as a local file from my disk, but when I put it on our web server and retrieve it from there, nothing happens when I click on the file:/// link.

This is happening under Safari 2.0 on OS X 10.4.2 (cross-tested on a brand-new iMac), but by comparison does not happen under Safari 1.2.4 under OS X 10.3.8 on an old eMac.

The HTML source as viewed in the browser when loading it each way is identical:

Go here: link

Has anyone else seen -- and hopefully resolved -- this?

Thanks,
Robert
