OpenGraph Image URLs

I was creating an event page for Youth For Seva's Annual Day '12 at http://rishabhsrao.github.com/yfs-ad-2012/publish/index.html and ran into a problem with Facebook's OpenGraph's og:image:url meta tag. It appears that it can’t take relative URLs. Bummer! Others have also asked about it here and here. It has to be absolute. I’m gonna try giving a relative URL for now — no choice. Hope it gets implemented in the future.

The Facebook Like Linter Tool said,

Object Invalid Value: Object at URL 'http://rishabhsrao.github.com/yfs-ad-2012/publish/index.html' of type profile is invalid because the given value img/yfs-logo-only-120.png for property og:image:url could not be parsed as type url.
