HTML page with base URI (HREF attribute of BASE tag) defined may be processed incorrectly in some cases: - if value of base URI is set using setAttribute(); - if value of base URI contains non-empty path (for example: 'http://some.com/some/path'); - if HTML page contains form with relative or hostless action path (for example: 'some/path/action.html' or '//some/path/action.html').


Relative URIs may be rewritten incorrectly.


This occurs when using url rewrite.
