Linking that is neither cross ref nor web link

Post by mdslup »

I maintain a server with several different manuals (each manual, the result of a webhelp resonsive transformation scenario from its own ditamap).

Sometimes, I need these manuals to link to each other (again, remember, none of these are maintained in the same ditamap).

Now, I *could* use a "hard" link (ie, an xref of type 'web link'), as if I was linking to an external website. But I'd much prefer to tell Oxygen to create a link that traverses that directory structure that I know exists on the server. For instance, if I have a folder called "Manual_1" on the server, I want to be able to tell Oxygen, "Create a link that looks like this: ../../Manual_2/File.html"
where the "../../" gets me *out* of the Manual 1 directory on the server.

Is this possible?
