IT Lesson for Roger Buck

In pictures. I am sorry, I cannot add an invisible space or indivisible space to the html, but subtracting the final l will give a similar effect.*

Here I go to the url of one post, but taking away a final l:

See to it that the post url now ends in html (with l and without anything after), click go to:

This is VERY, and I mean VERY simple. To get to any page on the web, you need the right signs, not one too many, nor one too few.

If you really can't learn it, ask your daughter or son or granddaughter or grandson for help. Communication on internet should not depend on the incompetence of you and your likes.

* This refers to part of our dialogue. I had been telling him, if he came to a "no such page" he should look at the url for adding of an invisible space (which would have in url in adress bar no longer have been invisible, but which would have needed fixing). Here this dialogue is published, with some comment on his video:
