For linking containers use a trailing slash in the URL to avoid redirects. If you want to link to a possibly existing directory index, do not
include a reference to the index itself, for example
index.html in the URL
For choosig the format of the URL to use for linking XIMS objects consider the following two different cases:
The parent of the referenced object is the same or a child of the referencing object.
The referenced object is in a different branch of the hierarchy tree.

wants to link to the object
/somesite/somedepartment/manuals/rtfm.html . Here, the href-attribute (i.e. the link URI) should say
For case (2) use links relative to the root of the current site the object is located in.
For example let us say the object
/somesite/somedepartment/cooperations.html wants to link to the object
. In that case the link URI should say
