Well, I guess you get them from the net, or you get them via
some other medium, such as a floppy. The easiest way to do
things (easiest for the end user) is to make sure your
application has a reasonable local cache built in.
I think both libwww and jigsaw (both available as open
source from W3C) include that.

URI processing. Can you be more specific?
