On the Visual Studio Start Page, the "Unified C# 3.0 Specification Now Available" link is broken. It is...

But it should be ...

I looked and looked for a more appropriate place to post this before posting here, and couldn't find one.

It'd be nice if there were a link at the bottom of the start page that we can use to report errors such as this. You guys make it much to hard to send simple feedback such as this.

Hi PhillipBlanton,

Thanks a lot for reporting the issue. This is a known bug that spaces get stripped from the links when they are displayed in the start page. We decided not to include a fix for it in VS 2008 at this time of the product cyle. However we will update our URL's so that they don't contain spaces, as a workaround.

Thanks again!
