msn.com isn’t on it’s period!

Adding a dot to the end of a domain name is technically valid on the
Internet. For example, instead of “barrycarter.info”, you can say
“barrycarter.info.”.

Most sites handle the extra dot well. For example
http://yahoo.com.will redirect you to http://www.yahoo.com/

MSN, however, doesn’t (it appears to be the largest/most popular site
that doesn’t handle the extra dot well). While http://msn.com/ works
fine, http://msn.com. yields an error.
