You da man!

I've never heard of this tag, but it shows up on my Visibone cheatbook,
and my HTML 4 reference. Moreover, it works. When the URL in the base
tag is specified as:

<base href="http://mysite.com/";>

and, for example, a graphic link is done this way:

<img src="graphics/myportrait.gif">

It appears to override other considerations with regard to pathing.

I've already chosen an alternative solution, but I'll definitely keep
this in mind for future reference. Thanks, much.
