    ......but the first link worked. Why? Are these back/forward slashes
    interchangeable??

    IE seems to convert them for you.

    The browser probably recognises you've made a mistake.

    And at the end of the day it's all Microsoft's fault, as usual. There
    was no reason not to use the already de-facto standard / as a directory
    separator in DOS, but they just decided to be a bit different. Great.

    Yes and because of this annoying error correcting habit, those who use
    IE to test their website don't realise how many html coding errors they
    have, hence it perpetuates even more need for browsers to cope with ever
    more errors.
