Url Vs. Uri

Recommended Posts

http://en.wikipedia....urce_IdentifierSeems URI is a broader term which includes URLs and URNs:
One can classify URIs as locators (URLs), or as names (URNs), or as both. A Uniform Resource Name (URN) functions like a person's name, while a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) resembles that person's street address. In other words: the URN defines an item's identity, while the URL provides a method for finding it.
Though, URI and URL are often used interchangeably to refer to a web address or file path. Edited by ShadowMage

I've never seen much use for a URN. I think I've seen some Microsoft resources use them, but that's it.
