Bug Description

Rev. 788
Ch. 3, § "Navigating to another page", p. 50 (PDF p. 52)
Type: error in URL

Manual has:
One example is “http://www.ubuntu.com/.”

Though not clear from my quotation, the full stop has been included as part of the URL. While it doesn't cause a problem (e.g. 404), it is technically wrong. On this occasion it might be better to use logical quotation and put the full stop outside rather than inside, as American convention dictates.

One example is “http://www.ubuntu.com/”.

If it *must* be inside, then it should at least be extracted from the URL.
