How do I enter a relative link in the Hypertext box 'Go to URL' field?

I am using Framemaker 11 and wish to mark some text (e.g. 'Contact us'), with a relative link. As an example, the absolute link is https://online.test.com/mds/support/contacts.html, but the root is going to change, so with the root being https://online.test.com, I go to Special->Hypertext and select 'Go to URL' I need to enter a relative link here, so I enter: /mds/support/contacts.html. I tried it, converted my FM doc to webhelp via webworks ePublisher, and the link was dead. Apparently FM does not accept relative links, or does it? Am I doing this incorrectly? Do I need a different syntax?, do I need to upgrade FM to get this option? Please advise.

Thanks for any help you may provide.

Cheers,

William
