TYPING URLs

Do not follow URLs with periods or other end punctuation, even when a URL ends a sentence.

Position URLs on a single line when possible. If it is essential to split a URL between two lines, do so after a slash that occurs in the URL; don't add a dash or any other punctuation that is not part of the URL itself.

Students who wish to take the train to Boston can find the schedule at http://www.mbta

On the web, hyperlink words or phrases instead of writing out the full URL. See Writing and formatting for the web for more information.
