Default URL Blocking

I tried to add a URL for the local transit authority detour list to the civic association web site, but the authority web site seems to block going to that address:

http://www.septa.org/ccftp/detourlist.html

which takes the user to the main page, not the detour list. Any ideas on how this is done, and particularly whether there is any way to defeat it? It is not easy for the casual user to find this list.

You don't have the URL spelled correctly. It contains two capital letters: DetourList.

Exactly right, I discovered that just after posting the earlier message. Some servers care about capitals, some do not.

Unix servers (the majority) are case sensitive. MS servers are not.
