WWW is optional

Hello Canon UK. You are not the only offender by a long shot. Regardless, it's not rocket science to make http://www.canon.co.uk and http://canon.co.uk/ both work and point at the same thing.

This is one of my biggest pet peeves with websites. Because I am lazy I tend not to type the www in URLs unless I know it's strictly necessary. And even then I resent having to do it because the people setting up the website were too lazy to make it work. There really isn't any excuse. Your webserver almost certainly supports the notion that www.example.com and example.com both point to the same website. Even the BBC, who for years didn't and came up with numerous excuses for not doing so, have made it work.
