Dear all: 

I agree with the need to consider file://  ( or at least re-consider the
missing functionality) applicable to exec files / directories with HTML
documents, stored on physical devices ( like USBs or CD-DVDs), even it
might sound uselessness in the _cloudy_ times we live. 

This HTML docs MUST be viewable using a modern browser and listening to
DOM events. 

This required or proposed functionality ACCOMPLISHES well according to
standards, in the following scenarios: 

If the HTML document (static or don't )  links to any other docs
published at the WWW, ( as it was usual in DVDs and CDs from the ages of
the multimedia hype), like videos or external sites. 

Accessibility for earth places where you or the receiver needs to
storage and view HTML content, and where a direct connection speed may
not be as we know  (_ It comes to mind a friend who just came back from
her NGO's mission not far away from our places -- the term 'slow
connection' becomes there an euphemism_ ). 

Just mumbling , if it means for the goals. 

Kind Regards


Note on Patrick's et al:  WWW is a protocol for the HTTP (S) via TCP/IP

The "world wide web" is the user-facing portion of the Internet. Files
on a CD or USB drive are not part of that.
