 Thanks for your reply.
 
 But I disagree what you told.
 
 I made Web Robot, and tested it in Apache server.
 It went into infinite routine, because 'index.html/'
 generate infinite anchors.
 
 ex>
    http://www.apache.org/index.html/
 -> http://www.apache.org/index.html/mirrors/
 -> http://www.apache.org/index.html/mirrors/mirrors/=20
 -> ...
 
 If some html-writer write some anchor trailed by '/'
 and Apache don't say '404 NOT found' or redirect URL=20
 not-trailed by '/', Robot and WebBrowser got wrong URL=20
 always.
 
 CERN and Netscape Enterprise and IIS ans other Webserver
 say '404 NOT FOUND' on that condition. Plz check them.
 
 Thanks 4 reading my bad english, I am not native-speaker.
 
 I'll wait your reply. cya.
