My client wants a link in their nav that is outbound. I have their nav setup through the <r:navigation> tag, but there is a problem using absolute URLs <r:navigation urls="About: /about | Foo: http://foo.com"> This generates a link that does go to the right place, but the display text is: "Foo: http" Is there a trick to getting this to work right? or is this just not something this tag supports right now?

Alex, Yes, it is unsupported. Since that item will never be selected, however, you could make it its own link sitting by itself. I know that's not the ideal solution, but I've done it several times in different circumstances. Depending on the order of your URLs, you may have to break it into two <r:navigation> tags. Sean

Decimal-Entity Notation worked for me: <r:navigation urls="Home: /|Photographs: http://www.externalsite.com"> A double slash seems to work too: <r:navigation urls="Home: /|Photographs: //www.externalsite.com"> But it shows up in the HTML that way, it's not very standard, and I didn't test it in all browsers.
