Subject off subject .. in URLs
Date Tue, 23 Mar 1999 23:38:04 GMT
Can someone tell me if the prevdir symbol .. is allowed in a URL ?

	http://my.dom/cgi-bin/../images/x.gif
<http://my.dom/cgi-bin/../images/x.gif> 

Using IE, the browser translates the dot dot before sending the URL to the
server.
Using lynx, the URL gets sent to Apache with the dot dot.  
(but then Apache serves the file just fine so it must support dot dot.)

Is dot dot support a function of the browser, the server, neither (as
defined in an RFC), or both ?
