Hello,

I am running Infocenter as a stand-alone app and bring it to the enduser
by using Apache's mod_proxy, like it is proposed in the documentation.

Unfortunately there are problems with this approach.
When I use "Print selected topic and all subtopics" then most of the
links are broken because the point to 127.0.0.1:8888. Images and CSS are
missing completely.
Reason for that is that the page contains absolute links and those are
ignored by mod_proxy. Printing the selected topic works like expected,
because it only prints the content frame.

Of course, mod_proxy_html could do the job, but I start to wonder, why
the printing preview uses the absolute URLs in the first place. I don't
see any sense in that behaviour and would regard it as a bug.

Any comments on this?

Thanks,
Daniel

I'm not familiar with mod proxy but I agree that links should be made
relative in "Print selected topic and all subtopics" where possible, and
I suggest you file a bug.
