Jeri, I didn't see anything that sounded terse.
As a matter of good practice, one really should get in the habit of surrounding a URL with the double quote character. Some URLs won't work correctly unless the double quotes are there. Also one should really keep the single forward slash between the host domain name and the page reference. The single slash instructs the server to begin at the root of the applicable directry tree. Without the forward slash, the server will perform a search relative to its current directory. If that doesn't happen to be the root, the reference may not be found.
