Starter Level Advice

/ Slash

The following describes a main use of the slash. For a further use, see the Development Level.

In URLs

URLs are the titles for pages on the web. There may be slashes between some elements of a URL.

It is very important to put them in the right place. If they are in the wrong place the URL will not work (i.e. it will not call up the page you want). You will probably need to give URLs in a list of references.
