Subject RE: W32 - leading periods?
Date Mon, 06 Jul 1998 20:32:18 GMT
Huh.

I think it's just a typo - the link text in the article isn't
the same as the HREF; there should be an extra '\' between the
final period and "productinfo":

<a href="http://website.oreilly.com/wspro2/../wspro2/.\productinfo">
http://website.oreilly.com/wspro2/../wspro2/.productinfo
</a>
