Well, it seems pretty much any page with a relative link which is not
relative to the document root of the server. An example is

http://www.une.edu.au/itd/index.html

If you try to follow the "About ITD" link on that page, instead of
getting 

http://www.une.edu.au/itd/about/index.html
 
I get

http://www.une.edu.au/about/index.html

which doesn't work (obviously). 

I will check the page for incorrect HTML - however, the above pages
work with every other browser I've tried - w3m, firefox, opera, IE.

Will check, but doubt its a page specific problem as all other
browsers are dealing with this page (and other) fine. Note that w3
under xemcas also works fine.
