The best way to understand what is at stake here is to get yourself a 
Firefox extension like HttpFox, activate it, and then get your page from 
the server.
Then look in the HttpFox window what your /browser/ is actually asking 
from the server.

The key part to understand, is that the browser never sends a request to 
the server for "../../file.img".
It is the browser which interprets these relative links (relative to 
where it got the current page from), and transforms them to make them 
"absolute", before requesting the object from the server.
Once you really understand that (which is easier when you look at the 
result in HttpFox), then what you need to do will become much much clearer.
