BASE tag affects only to relative URL in HTML body, thus if a URL in
original message is written in full-URL like http://www.microsoft.com/xxx
or if it appears in HTTP header or CSS body, it is left as is.

(relative URI in those tags are interpreted based on "codebase" attribute)

Putting BASE into mediated HTML data by DeleGate might be useful to sweep
