Relative paths to site root instead of current document

The cascade system automatically resolves indexed <path> values to pages and creates relative links to the published document, when used in context of <a href="{path}>. Is there a way for it to produce a link relative to the site root?

For example, when /1/2/3/out.html is published with a link to /a/b/c/page.html, the result of <a href="{path}"> will become "../../../a/b/c/page.html"

I would like for it to instead, produce a link in form of "/a/b/c/page.html"

    Producing site-root-relative links is controlled on a page-by-page basis. On the System pane of a Page, you'll find a checkbox labeled “Maintain absolute links when publishing”. Turning that on will cause all links to be written out in the form you want.

    Because this setting is available only on individual pages, there is no way to enforce it site-wide. If you want it to be the default, however, you can turn it on for the Base Assets of your Asset Factories. All assets created using the New menu will have the option enabled.
