[xep-support] External file: links...

We're trying to produce a PDF document with a link to an html file - there are no issues when it's an http: URL but I can't seem to get it to work for a file: based URL.

We're using FO of the form:

<fo:basic-link color="blue" external-destination="file:///temp/test.html">


<fo:basic-link color="blue" external-destination="file:///c:/appendix1.html"/>

We're using XEP 4.9.
The XEP documentation says:

"In XEP, URLs starting with explicit "file:" protocol specification are rendered as PDF inter-document links. All other links are treated as Internet URIs, and open in a browser. "

does this mean that there is no way to link to a local file other than PDF files? I know that PDF supports this as I have produced and seen other PDF documents that do this successfully.

All clarification or guidance would be appreciated.
