    The browser will go to whatever page you type in. If you want the main page, go there and save it in your favourites for quick access.

    I've visited both and they both go to the same place.

    I may not be understanding the problem?

    the problem is google looks at them as different pages so page rank and google listings are effected as it thinks you are showing 2 duplicate pages and trying to cheat them (well thats the jist of what i have read on the internet)

    Would it be easier to change the /index.html links to the full web address?
