I dont think this is the case. file: URLs *should* only contain / and there
is a method of translating C: into C| if I recall correctly, and to be fair
to MS these methods do work. However IE also uses (and prefers) to use : and
\ in file URLs, in fact it even lets you drop the file: part too. However
these are all extensions to the spec, I think.

So this file:///C|/windows/blah.dll is more correct than
