Hi Bob,

World Wide Web is a proper noun.  There is only one World Wide Web

Not my line, someone else wrote that. I said woof, woof, woof in response 

Its just a pity the person I knew and conversed with is no longer around or 
he wouold have put us all right..Writing properly was his thing. A Uni 
education by luck of the draw and made good use of his education. I almost 
feared not writing properly when he was in the forums (moderator) even now I 
strive to write decent just in case he has returned and is watching like a 
ghost from christmmas past...hahaahahahahah

I missed a lot of schools through illness as a child so I have had to learn 
all this stuff as I go. I'm into commas, full stops, and apostrophies at the 
minute in the correct place..

Bed-time here
Bye Bob.
