According to Newton's Telecom Dictionary, it is Uniform Resource
Locator. In the data and telecommunications industry, this is also the
terms we use. Does anyone have any references that say otherwise? I
understand that Universal is also used, but not necessarily "official."

If I'm not mistaken, there are two interpretations: "Universal Resource
Locator" and "Uniform Resource Locator". I don't think there is really any
difference; they both refer to World Wide Web addresses. For example, is the URL for Apple Computer's WWW page.

Does anyone know if there is a "correct" interpretation?
