Hmm... if you have links like HREF="/somepage/index.html" apache should not
qualify this link with the local host name.

At least I see a correct unqualified link if i telnet to apache and view the
source in telnet. The browser is the one who qualifies the links. It might
be different if you use some redirections, then those are broken. You can
also just enter the valid internet knoen server name in apchaes config file.
