No. That isn't the question I thought I was answering. I was only
saying that references to files on the server which you include in a
template all need to be absolute. This may extend to references within
the included files; I'm not sure about that.

The other point is you have a lot of flexibility when editing
templates, but for pages not generated from templates, e.g. the
listinfo overview page, you have to actually modify Mailman code.
Earlier in this thread, I indicated a simple way to include a style
sheet reference in all such pages. You could also include definitions
of javascript functions in the same way, but actually calling those
functions in the body of the page would require further modifications.
