Problem with Spider and Slashes

From: Dolce, John A (AIT) <john.A.dolce(at)not-real.msg.ameritech.com>

I am trying to build an index using the Spider.  However, the links on the
pages it is retrieving use "\" for directories instead of "/" and the Spider
tries to access them with "%5C" like

retrieving http://jrfsmc01.ameritech.com/cisco/6400/con_r2%5Cindex.htm
(1)...
retrieving http://jrfsmc01.ameritech.com/cisco/6400/install%5Cindex.htm
(1)...
retrieving http://jrfsmc01.ameritech.com/cisco/6400/siteplan%5Cindex.htm
(1)...

whereas con_r2%5Cindex.htm is really con_r2\index.htm in the html code.

I tried the following ReplaceRules and they did not work

ReplaceRules "\\" "/"
ReplaceRules "%5C" "/"

Any ideas?

Thanks
