Hi, good day. 

For question 3, may I know if we should treat <Linux> and <linux> as the same index or 
different indexes ?

Thank you.

The document is still there, unmoved, at:

  https://teaching.csse.uwa.edu.au/units/CITS4407/assignments/assignment1-clarifications.php

(just using http: not https: )

I suspect that you're using Safari on a Mac, which has a relatively new (annoying) feature, to map 
http: URLs to https: if the original URL was loaded from a webpage using https:
In our case, the help fora are served from URLs such as  https://secure.csse...
but any URLs, such as https://teaching.csse..., are mapped/redirected by your browser to something that 
doesn't exist.

There seems no simple fix to this, other than deleting all your website private data (cookie), but 
don't.

Try it with Firefox; notice that the problem does not occur.

I have asked ITS for a website certificate for teaching.csse...,
but it is the weekend.

Hi Chris,

Just letting you know that I'm having issues with these links using Firefox on Linux - they're all pointing to https://. Interestingly, the quoted text above includes the link to the https URL, which presumably is generated server-side?
