I am using the RichTextEditor, and saving html with images.

When I try to save this -

either this gets saved -
http://virtualweb:82/images/shim.gif" border=0>
or this gets saved -
http://localhost/mysite/images/shim.gif" border=0>

depending on if am running on a remote website or on my own pc as localhost.

I really want a relative url for images
so that I don't have to rewrite my html
when I move from localhost to Test, to QA, and to Production.

How can I save an image without the RichTextEditor telling me what to do?

This is even worser than I expected.

I saved the html from a remote version of the site, then opened the html from a localhost version of my website.
The image html was changed when I opened the page, before I did a save!

The RichTextEditor changes the html, putting in the website name that it is running on!

This is basic functinoality and should have been tested by SyncFusion when it was developed!

If I go to that link, the Resolution is listed as "This issue has been solved.".

Yet there is no available version where images
in the richtext editor are working properly.

When can we expect to have a fixed version?

Thank you.
