In DOS and Microsoft Windows, either the backslash or slash can be used as the delimiter between directories and filenames in path expressions. This is in contrast to Unix paths and Internet URLs (web addresses), which only use the forward slash.

If the IIS 404 page alarms you, play it calm.

Just replace the backslashes in url with forward slashes, press enter and wait for your nice syllabus page to load. 🙂

IETE web admin must watch out for these while writing any links 😛
