How to use in browser

but could benefit from "live" examples which are accessible.
Also, please explain this statement: While ARKs have application in identifier persistence, the ARK scheme sees persistence as purely a matter of service and not a property of a naming syntax. —01:38, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

Not entirely sure that anatomy of an ARK is correct
Currently the first paragraph of the entry contains the following:
- An ARK contains the label ark: after the URL's hostname,...
But I believe this in fact should read "after the URL's pathname". It just so happens that all of the example ARK URLs that I find have an empty path, like http://myrepo.example.org/ark:/12345/bcd987 . So the offending text doesn't look like an error but I'm pretty sure that it is.
I don't want to change it because I had not heard of ARKs before about 15 minutes ago and am a little unsure that I'm correct.
