    Accessible urls

    I'm not if this has been discussed before but I'm working on redeveloping a site and the owner wants to abbreviate some of the urls for marketing purposes ie it's easier to remember a sorter url of a specific page.

    In terms accessibility, if I have a page entitled "Why Meeting Technology", what's the best url I can give it?

    Is that a page or directory, I would assume something like "meetingtech" if it were a page.

    Sorry, its a page. The page title is actually "Meeting Technology" in the "Why" section. Would something like whatever.com/why/meeting-tech.htm not be best or does it not really matter?

    daz, how about this idea: the "proper" location of the page would be something like www.thesite.com/technology/why/meeting or whatever, but you create a server-side redirect so that www.thesite.com/meetingtech redirects the user to the "proper" location...like a tinyurl, a shortcut to it's Buddha Nature http://www.veen.com/jeff/archives/000110.html
