this is very basic on linking to /theme files in templates.
given i am using my own theme and including css:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="themes/exampletheme/css/screen.css" type="text/css" media="screen" />
the thing is though, the engine generates links with slashes at the end by default, i.e.:
and this obviously wouldn't work as the ultimate http request to css is assembled as following:
while i need the query to point to www.example.com/themes/exampletheme/css/screen.css
in other words this kind of relative path above ("themes/exampletheme/....") doesn't work unless i remove the end slash from the URL.
there seems to be a workaround by using $BaseHref for all media files but i am sure there is another clean way. just by looking at the code used at silverstripe.com ;)
i also don't want to hardcode anything as paths on devel server are different.
how do you guys deal with this? have i missed something in the confuguration .htaccess?

Have you got the <% base_tag %> in your theme? This sets the <base> tag in your template to yoursite.com/ so every relative link on the page is taken from this.
