Some other types of servers that can also be accessed using a Web Browser are:
mailto:email@example.com send mail to the address firstname.lastname@example.org. This is often used in an <ADDRESS> tag to allow the reader to quickly send mail to the author of a document.
news:usyd.courses.eng.U1.511allows the reader to access the newsgroup usyd.courses.eng.U1.511. The reader's browser, not the URL, determines the NNTP server to use.
telnet://eelab.usyd.edu.au/will create a TELNET session on DIESEL at Sydney University. The reader can then login (assuming they have an account on that system).
This concludes this lesson of HTML . Please return to the HTML Index and continue with the next lesson.
