When i download the following page, OE add default.htm to ICONPATH. So now the image aren't display anymore.

Is there a way to correct this behaviour ?

HTML code of the page which exhibit this problem:
<html>
<head>
<title>MEGA_Process_600_Tree</title>
<LINK REL="STYLESHEET" TYPE="text/css" HREF="../STANDARD/WS_INTRANET.CSS">
<script src="../STANDARD/WS_UA.JS"></script>
<script src="../STANDARD/WS_TREETEMPLATE.JS"></script>
<script>
ICONPATH = '../STANDARD/default.htm'
var counterI = 0
foldersTree = gFld("<b></b>", "WS_DATABASE.GIF", "WS_DATABASE.GIF", "")
foldersTree.treeID = "big"
foldersTree.xID = 'X0';
counterI--;
foldersTree1=insFldX(foldersTree,gFld("Echanges EAI","GENR.GIF","","2A962B4342B9000D.HTM","false"))
foldersTree2=insFldX(foldersTree,gFld("Vue technique des sites","GENR.GIF","","55D856D63EE00002.HTM","false"))
foldersTree21=insFldX(foldersTree2,gFld("Diagramme g&eacute;n&eacute;ral dsanitized_by_modx& #39architecture technique Carrefour","MAT_R.GIF","","55D856D63EE00002.HTM@DiagTab=0","false"))
foldersTree3=insFldX(foldersTree,gFld("Vues dsanitized_by_modx& #39ensemble","GENR.GIF","","FA0EFAED3E1E0010.HTM","false"))
foldersTree31=insFldX(foldersTree3,gFld("Point dsanitized_by_modx& #39entr&eacute;e applicatif","MA_R.GIF","","FA0EFAED3E1E0010.HTM@DiagTab=0","false"))
foldersTree.treeID = "L1"
</script>
</head>
<body topmargin="16" marginheight="16">
<script>initializeDocument()</script>
<script src="../STANDARD/WS_KEYSHORTCUTTEMPLATE.JS"></script>
</body>
</html>

I am sorry for that.

Yes, this is very hard to understand logically whether ICONPATH = '/STANDARD/' line means a direct link to a folder or a part of string that will be later possibly used to make full links to images.

Perhaps we will find a way in the future to implement such logic.

A simple way to desactivate this behaviour would be ok.

I don't understand the need to append default.htm to the path.
And it pose problem with script like this one.

OK. I added a workaround for this case. Do you need the updated version right now?

I've received it and it's working great :)

Thanks you for your reactivity !

By using it, i've noticed another small problem: reference to folders with accented character like "eea..." aren't correctly handled. Instead i have folder name with things like "&eacute;" instead of "e".

We had to make this because some symbols might not be accepted by some filesystems. We plan to work more on Unicode support in future, but this is a lot of work.

accented character aren't unicode, there are in the ascii charset.

and i think they are supported by all version of windows.

this is of course not the same for unicode character.

Yes, but the same symbol will look differently on different filesystems and Windows. It depends on the Windows default charset installed.
