hmmm, not sure if it'd be a dup of bug 95687... i haven't encountered this, except while testing bug 90081 --which turned out to be my hitting up against bug 12493... let me grab a more recent build to test with the URL provided here...
tested using 2001.08.21.08-comm on linux [rh6.2]. the vlink color appears for the "java" links i clicked, but not for the "Info Center", "Geometry Center", etc links at the bottom. i noticed that the url's for links at the bottom are mixed-case [http://www.ScienceU.com/] --are mixed-case url's also considered non-canonical? if so, then this would be a dup of bug 12493.
Yes, one of the things that happens when a URL is canonicalized is that the hostname becomes all lower-case. This offers some protection against spoofs like "paypaI.com" (where the last letter is a capital i).
dup of 12493, then. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 12493 ***
