Hello, Stephen,

Thanks for the report. Could you please try once again? I can reach
http://www.w3.org/ in Firefox 1.0.6 Windows and Mac. If the problem persists I
will forward your note to the Webmaster.

The filename can vary (Overview, home, etc.). I'm not aware of an index.htm or
index.html file in use in this case.

Hope this helps,
