How to use in browser[edit]

Please expand the section on how to use in a browser. The article shows a sample structure:

[http://NMAH/]ark:/NAAN/Name[Qualifier]

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. — Senator2029  talk 01:38, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

Not entirely sure that anatomy of an ARK is correct[edit]

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.
