+------- Additional Comments From robertj at gmx.net  2006-02-13 17:11 -------
+It breaks other stuff where MS.NET uses to return absolute paths:
+In context of /app/dir/foo.aspx:
+    ResolveUrl("subdir/bar.aspx")
+returns "/app/dir/subdir/bar.aspx" on MS.NET
+I already tried these kind of patches.
+I don't unterstand under which circumstances MS.NET
+returns absolute or relative paths. While the docs
+state that the Url will be "just good" for the
+client, it's always absolute, like Mono's ResolveUrl.
+That's why they probably came up with ResolveClientUrl
+in .NET 2.0, which always returns relative Urls, if possible.
+HyperLink.NavigateUrl, Image.ImageUrl and all other WebControls
+that have a Url-like property doesn't use ResolveUrl. They use
+an internal method ResolveClientUrl. That's why I came up with
+the new method, because I felt that ResolveUrl cannot be
+changed to return relative paths here and absolute there.
