I had a website I developed a few months back and suddenly it seems the links are all bad. What's happening is all the links I typed like so:
<a href="www.example.net/">visit this site</a>
Browsers assumes means "http:/
/www.example.com/www.example.net/" as if it's a subdomain.
Is this a recent change of W3 standards in handling relative URLs? I could have sworn these all worked originally.

[edit reason] switch to example.com - it can never be owned [/edit]
