    No it doesn't, he's mistakenly put the icon within the URL tags

    No, the hyphon was there, he had included the tag for the icon within the end of the URL.

    Its URL, not URI - Uniform Resource Locator. Yes, I know what URI means and stands for but it is too generic a term to be used for what is exactly (in this context) a URL.

    "...A URL is a subset of the URI popular protocols. These are protocols (http://, ftp://, mailto. Therefore all URLs are URIs. The term URL is deprecated and the more correct term URI is used in technical documentation. All URIs are means to access a resource on the Internet and are a a technical short hand used to link to the resource. URIs always designate a method to access the resource and designate the specific resource to be accessed."

    I've been through it a few times! I did a bit of french at school!

    One interesting thing is the reports of zero brakes in very heavy rain. I found s3 passion when invenstigating this exact phenomenon on the way back form Germany and S3 passion has the "fix". Sorted by some POrsche brake engineer, its is some deflectors on the bottom arms, seem to be audi parts!

    A good site all round IMO

    Very nice. As I said, in the context of this thread and also the more accepted convention for describing Web site addresses by 99% of non technical people frequenting this and other forums, URL is a more accurate description.
    As you say, a URL is a subset of a generic URI so by definition is a more accurate label. By using URI (imho) you are confusing people and almost showing off a more in-depth knowledge which can come across as a little condescending.
    Don't take that as a dig

    Stewart - That's fair enough, I work in IT though therefore I'm used to using the correct terminology.

    S3IZZO - That looks great, White is making a bit of a comeback right now. Did we even get them? Quattro GmbH order perhaps..

    Me too, in fact I headed up a webdev team for three years before I started contracting but neither I, nor any of my colleagues or friends in IT ever use URI when referring to website addresses or local resources.

    It must be us old skool IT bods stuck in our ways (or ruts?)

    I always find "link" the best term to use when talking to non-techies.

    that same pic gets dredged up every couple of months!
    is there no more photographic evidence of a white S3?

    the 'mini S3' photos are pretty good on that site........ have a trawl through.

    Lol, that is most definitely the old Stewart

    I inherited the family business (after my dad and I started an award winning pizza restaurant in '87) but during the day I persued other careers. I went from MV tech (from love of cars and rallying but soon realised there was no money in it) to IT in around '94 although I started with IT in '86 with programming business software for the BBC 'B' micro almost as a hobby..

    A very varied and interesting career life with an average of 2 or 3 potential careers on the go at any one time, no wonder im still single at 38! lol but very elligible!
