    Question DURIs: omg or wtf?

    So...in the process of using google to check my spelling (cboard needs a better one, btw), I stumbled upon this. Honestly, I couldn't make heads nor tails out of it - just sounds like a bunch of nonsense, TBQH. Question: is this really the cutting-edge...or just a lot of nerdy neologism (as I suspect)?

    Indeed. It seems like an over the top explanation for URI References. Should probably be merged with the URI entry, or simply deleted. The URI entry already explains references.

    It also starts on a very bad note.

    Is it, now?
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Yes, and apparently this bit was edited by Toucan Sam: "In either case, the mechanism makes it possible for a user (or software agent) to 'follow your nose' to find out more information related to the identified resource".

    It's not BB that checks your spelling, it's your browser. You need a better browser or language pack.
