Afternoon all

Standard practice at the beeb has always been to use link urls relative to
the root: 

Clearly these are of little use in a microformat (or any attempt to use html
as an api)

So my question is - are there any problems we should be aware of in
switching to full path urls? One or 2 developers have mentioned the
possibility of creating unnecessary connections but no-one seems sure

I've googled around but all the absolute/relative url discussions are web
tutorials from 1995 so thought u might be a good port of call...
