Thanx for your feedback, Emko
If I put www.mydomain.com/mypage.htm it looks exactly the same to a spider (or surfer) once it's fetched the page as "/mypage.htm" as the domain name is automatically attached. Relative URL's are mainly useful to save coding time (and make it easier to move to a new domain name with the same site structure). I'm certain it's irrelevant for crawlers.
But, if someone else hooks up to your relative URL, that could be a different story! ;)
