Hi Klaus,

Can you try http://www.une.edu.au/itd and then try one of the links on
the page you get i.e. "About ITD" and see if that works for you. I've
found that if I use that link instead of
http://www.une.edu.au/itd/index.html, it doesn't work, but if I 
use the full link with the index.html on the end, relative links work
OK.  

I'm guessing the problem is that Emacs/W3 is interpreting a link that
ends without the explicit .html page (e.g. index.html) incorrectly -
its stripping the last element off the link and adding the relative
link to that, which is incorrect. 

regards,

Tim
