If you send these lines of code:

outdir="c:/pippo"
file.path(outdir,"pluto.html")

R replies correctly:

[1] "c:/pippo/pluto.html"

But if you change the first steps to:

outdir=""
file.path(outdir,"pluto.html")

R replies (uncorrectly, I think)

[1] "/c:/pippo/pluto.html"

This problem influence the R2HTML package too, which, if you send a line as:

targetHtml=HTMLInitFile(outdir="",filename="htmlFile",Title ="Title")

in windows it submit an error because of file.path() error.

Thank you
Enrico
