Subject W32 - leading periods?
Date Mon, 06 Jul 1998 15:32:47 GMT

In another forum [1] the "lead develper of O'Reilly's WebSite" gives
this example

 http://website.oreilly.com/wspro2/../wspro2/.productinfo

which WebSite revises into:

 http://website.oreilly.com/wspro2/productinfo/

My question?  Why does it strip the leading period
off ".productinfo"  Is there some reason to be 
afraid of files without names, but only extensions?
