I have just checked in the build system. So you can now build your own
standalone composer. The current version is only a starting point, so no
flames please. It's the beginning of the story, we have not reached the
cruise speed yet...

Build instructions available in mozilla/composer/readme.html (don't
trust LXR yet, it's not sync'd to last version... Prefer a cvs checkout
of the file)

If I'm editing a page and I copy text that's linked, Mozilla
Composer changes the link to one relative to the file's current
location. That is, it'll change

<a href="filename.htm">text</a>

to

<a href="file:///%7C/folder/subfolder/filename.htm">text</a>

This assures, of course, that the link will never work again.

Who the hell ever thought this was a good idea, and why, and
isn't there _some_ way to keep it from doing that?

Nobody thought it was a good idea; it's a bug. Unfortunately, a
long-standing one:

I've got so used to various html editors doing things for me
that I don't want done that I assumed someone thought this was a
feature. Netscape 4.7 Composer _doesn't_ do this. I haven't
checked NS7.1 yet . . . but surely there's _some_ way to keep
Mozilla from jogging the editor's elbow in this elaborate,
complicated and destructive way?
