I don't have the time to check in detail right now, but I suspect this 
is not on purpose. I think what is happening is this:

The plugin uses the s5sliddes/** URL to identify when something is to be 
displayed as a slide (this is bad design I know, it will change to 
something like **.s5.html in the future).

As a result if a URL is relative it will become "s5slides/**" which is 
not correct.

What needs to be done (and is already done for some image types I think) 
is a new pipeline match in resources.xmap (in the plugin) that redirects 
the path. Again, this is bad design, and is the kind of use case that I 
have been working on the locationmap for.

No need for the ant. Do "forrest site" to see the docs.

Why not?
