RE: what are the right URL?thank you. I just did'nt see the very little difference between w3.org and w3c.org (it was a little late). I'll also add the slash to avoid the additional server action as proposed.

bye

  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).
