Hi Paul,

Paul said:
According to RFC 2396, A URI is a sequence of characters with a restricted
syntax that can act as a reference to something that has identity. If the
something doesn't exist then it cannot and is thus not a URI.

Didier says:
Exactly. A URI represent something. It is a U_niform R_esource I_dentifier.
It provides identitity to a resource.
