I'm using Firefox under XP, and it is correctly refusing to parse the malformatted URL that Rick posted:
Proper URL format is protocol://server/directory_hierarchy/file
The original was a munging of Microsoft/IBM's Universal Naming Convention (UNC), with the backslashes, and of IETF/Internet-style Universal Resource Locators (URLs) with slashes...
Explorer 7 catches the mistake and filters it out (just tested it) The downside is that malformed webpages not adhering to standards, continue to propagate. But like Firefox, Opera, Safari, Konquerer currently do, Microsoft in IEv8 will default to strict interpretation of the W3C rules...
Sorry - just had to vent there...
Just two more days at work until I'm free. The cruise
begins September 14. We're pumped!
