The "base" element is an optional sub-element of the "head" element. The "base" element specifies a base URL for all the hyper links in XHTML document. It has one required attribute called "href" to allow you to specify the base URL. Here is an example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
  <base href="http://dev.fyicenter.com/faq/" />
  <title>My First XHTML Document</title>
  <p><img src="/images/fyi.gif"" alt="FYI" /></p>
