+This is rather a Uri issue. However I rather think there is an
+inconsistent design issue in .NET. For example the following code,
+when any of commented lines are enabled, causes UriFormatException:
+using System;
+public class Test
+        public static void Main ()
+        {
+                Console.WriteLine (new Uri (new Uri
+("file://c:/localhost/bar"), "file:./ext"));
+                Console.WriteLine (new Uri ("http://localhost/bar"));
+                Console.WriteLine (new Uri (new Uri
+("http://localhost/bar"), "file://c:/ext"));
+                //Console.WriteLine (new Uri (new Uri
+("http://localhost/bar"), "file:./ext"));
+                //Console.WriteLine (new Uri ("file:./ext"));
+        }
+Now I wonder if I should support such broken DTD which contains
+relative path with file URI and thus won't work outside local file
+system. When Uri issue is sorted out then it will be sorted out in sync.
