Possible to use Site Root relative links for one part, and document relative links for another part?

Hello,

Appreciate a little help with the attached ...

I have a site (1588 files in 274 folders) which I built using document relative links -

<!--#include file="scripts/removein.asp" -->
<img src="VarImages/logo.png">
<a href="news.asp">News</a>

etc....

Most of the files on the website are in password restricted directories, so here document relative links are fine.

However the publically available pages, need to be SEO URL rewritten (friendly) So I'm using an ISAPI rewrite tool.. however to acheive the desired result, I need for all links in these web pages to be Root specific.

Due to the large number of files, I ideally don't want to have to change all links in the website to root specific, as this will take ages, so I would rather just change the links in the files that need to be URL rewritten.

My question, is,.. is it possible to use both Root & Document relative links, for different areas of a website?

Please advise..

thank you

Yes, as long as a base url isn't defined.

It will however be inconsistent and possibly confusing at times as you will eventually wind up with a link somewhere like ../../../../../../file.htm. Been there :)
