Well, we can mark this one as solved.
Simple enough, actually -- thanks to Chris and Demian for leading me to water.
The following code works on both Linux and Windows 7:
def OnDocs(self, event):
"""Opens the User's Guide in the default web browser"""
fullpath = os.path.abspath('documentation/HTMLDocs/index.html')
url_link = "file:///" + fullpath
This allows both platforms to have their own idiosyncratic path structures without having to create separate code for each. It even chooses the correct browser!
I learned some more about Python today, too. I'd never explored the 'os.' library before, and now I see things a little more clearly.
Thanks again, guys!
