9.2. Electronic addresses
For reasons of harmonisation, the abbreviation URL is no longer used to introduce an electronic address.
We attempt to avoid using a full stop or other punctuation at the end of an Internet address, to allow for easier copying and pasting into an Internet browser address bar. When possible, it is recommended to adapt the text by using parentheses around the Internet address, such as in the example ‘see the Internet (http://europa.eu)’.
