<img src=/path/to/my/image.jpg />

But when I access the src bit using jQuery, jQuery gives me back:

This is causing problems in some comparisons I'm doing. I don't want to change my image paths to use absolute URLs.

There's not really a lot of jQuery code to post, I'm using the cycle plugin, and in the onbefore function, I'm just calling next.src.

$(img).attr(src) gives back the actual value of the src attribute (tried in FF3 and IE7)

And when you have

<img src=/path/to/my/image.jpg />

it will return
