If the above is clear to the reader, then fine. Unfortunately, I don't 
think that it is clear to the typical reader.

<http://www.w3.org/People/Berners-Lee/card*#i*> is the best of both worlds.

"/http://www.w3.org/People/Berners-Lee/card*#i*"/ is ultimately 
confusing, based on my experience in the field.
