Re-directing access within Frames #2

i have a slash mixup //\\ problem creating an empty pathname in newURL.

>make a generic script that >calulates the absolute path >using:
(btw typo in calulates)

Your calculation:
newURL = location.protocol + '//' + location.host + location.pathname.substring(0,location.pathname.lastIndexOf('/')) + '/newpage.htm'

Seems generic but when i work local/offline in MS IE 3 i get a pathname like
Even if i try to stubbornly open it with only / slashes, but that is immediately corrected to \ again.
So /c:\data\evwdemo\index2.htm
will of course be stripped to zilch/nada/noppes.

How then ? So this one must be stripped in another way. I'll try to swap all \'s to /'s first (nasty workaround) but since you understand it all a bit better than i do....
