Thanks for your reply. To answer your question, no it does not load if I enter it in the URL - this is the problem. What works in Mozilla/Firefox is "file:///machine_name/directory_path/myfile.doc <file:///machine_name/directory_path/myfile.doc> " i.e. three slashes then the path.
I agree this is strictly not a problem with pmwiki however pmwiki's strongest point is it's support for multiple browsers. To do this it has to present html/css et. al. in different ways to make things work so well.
I wonder if someone much cleverer than me can work out how to support what I would have thought would be a much used facility.

When you type file:\\machine_name\directory_path\myfile.doc in the address
bar of Firefox, does it load properly ?
It might have nothing to do with PmWiki but with the way Firefox handles
