Usage of '/' in .aspx page url

    I was just browsing through Dell's website and saw usage of '/' after
    the aspx page name(productdetails.aspx) in the url. e.g.:-
    http://www.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/inspnnb_1720?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&~ck=mn

    I am only familiar with usage of the query strings using the following
    format:-
    '.../pagename.aspx?
    <queryStringVariable1>=<Value1>&<queryStringVariable2>=<Value2>...'

    Any idea about the usage of the former type? Does it has any specific
    advantages?

    Thanks in advance for the response.

    those are called PathInfo
    U can get them with Request.PathInfo

    i dun see any advantages, except the URL looks more 'pretty'. Also it
    could cause problem if ya have plenty of javascript
    location.href="../" or <img src="../../"> stuffs like that, cause the
    browser intrepets it as a directory

    It is useful in Delphi webapp development.
