I try to design my web sites to be as location independent as possible. That

and other images in separate directories. I sometimes include something like
the following in my HTML

<!--Uncomment the next line before uploading!-->
<base href="">

so that I can test out my web pages locally before uploading them to the
server. These <base> tags need to be modified when the page is moved, at
least it is centralized.

Now, it occurs to me that there could be something like a <global_base>
which would be a bound beyond which ".." elements in relative URLs would not
be allowed to go.
