Same-document reference


The URI in question can be considered as a Same-Document Reference. As the current xml:base in effect does not match the URI of the document, this can lead to inconsistent and non-interoperable behavior between different clients.


Consider changing the xml:base to reference the either the document itself, or the parent directory of the document referenced.

For example, change:

<link href="." xml:base="" />

to this:

<link href="." xml:base="" />

or this:

<link href="blog/" xml:base="" />

Not clear? Disagree?
