We have a ReportCaster job that executes one of our reports nightly and mails the results as an attachment. The report it runs outputs as HTML, with a multi-drilldown on one field. Since neither the ibirls code or the stylesheet are included, the drilldowns don't work and the styles are default.
Is there some way to make ReportCaster include those files in the message? Perhaps there's some way to make WF supply the BASE-tag with an appropriate base URI?
I can't be the first person encountering this issue, I assume there is a solution

Thanks, I hadn't found that documentation when searching for a solution. It solves part of the problem.
I suspect that BASEURL should be sufficient to get both the drilldowns working (ie. references to ibirls3.js) as well as references to our own stylesheet and JS (none in this report, but that's coincidence).
Is there any way to get the HOSTNAME of the server that a report is located on? I do not want to hard-code server names in our reports, that is going to cause issues - that's just a matter of time. I fixed one such issue last week where our dashboard reports turned out to be run from our test-server instead of the production server while we were happily developing in them. How that happened? Because of an hardcoded server name.
