I'm not sure about RFC but Firefox treats URL with extra slashes as
different so visited links for http://www.erlang.org//doc/index.html will be
different from visited links on http://www.erlang.org/doc/index.html.
Not a big issue but nonetheless It seems strange to me that it is so
difficult not to include that superfluous slash in "Top" links.
