I have a user control (a footer, with a copyright statement [1]) in
***Note / is my webroot***

I have pages in "/" and also in "/working/" that happily call the footer,
using [2].


<div id="footer">
        <h6>Copyright &copy; HostMono 2005</h6>

<%@ Register TagPrefix="UserControl" TagName="Footer"
Src="/a/ssi/footer.ascx" %>

<UserControl:Footer id="myFooter" runat="Server" />
