Mobile Safari Cannot Open Local File

Screenshot from Mobile Safari showing an error message: 'Safari cannot open the page because it is a local file'

This is the error message Safari will show you if you try to open a file://-uri in it. Interestingly, it does nothing to check whether that file exists. (Because the one I tried with didn’t.)
