1 - Masayasu Ishikawa mentioned the domain name: w3c.org will redirect to
w3.org, which is the correct name.

2 - A URL pointing to a directory ends in a "/".  Servers will correct that
for you (by redirecting "/XML" to "/XML/", for example), so it's not obvious
that it's an error to leave off the "/".  The problem is that you add load
to the server because it has to perform an extra operation to serve up the
correct page (redirect, then serve the page).
