Uri has a constructor that should do this for you:
new Uri(Uri baseUri, string relativeUri)
Here's an example:
Uri baseUri = new Uri("http://www.contoso.com"); Uri myUri = new Uri(baseUri, "catalog/shownew.htm");
Note from editor: Beware, this method does not work as expected. It can cut part of baseUri in some cases. See comments and other answers.
