Christian, I think I may have your answer. Your problem actually reminded
me of a passage from a JavaScript book talking about Netscape 2.0 (and
early 3.0 version's) problems loading local files.

Your file reference -- file:///C:\Program -- may have 2 problems in it. (I
didn't test, so maybe I'm wrong.)

1. You used a \ character after C:, instead of /.

2. (This was from the JS book). In a local file reference you must put a
pipe character -- the | character (which is Shift + Backslash on the PC.)
after the drive.

So the reference you need, according to the book, is:
