[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: You are correct that it usually is just
'www' which means 'world wide web' and years ago, when the web was a
new thing, most all files used by it were put in a directory called
'www'. But that is not necessary. You can reach me for example either
with or without 'www' on the front. If he is saying 'www some number'
then a dot and something else thats just because he chose to use that
name, maybe to confuse the issue a little. The computer directories
do not care what they are called as long as there are no 'illegal'
characters in the name such as / or \ or " or . or , etc. PAT]
