No. I wrote this only because the example used a relative path pointing to the same folder:

But the same-source-policy is becoming more and more strong.
The browser (or webkit repspectively) wants a clear "base-url" when making the decision
whether 'same-source' is fulfilled.
This may be a problem here because such a "base-url" is derived by also checking the
html-file origin. And in the case of an empty URL of the widget (htmltext only is set)
there is no file origin ...
