In addition to what Jan said, you can sometimes get an hmtl list back
from a URL ending in "/" which indicates a directory. What you get back
depends on how the web server has been configured to deal with file
listings, and whether there is an "index" file in place. Usually if
there is an index.html file, the web server won't allow a listing of
files. Usually if there is not an index.html, and the web server hasn't
been explicitly not to do file listings, it will return an html listing
of files including icons and timestamps and stuff.
