I thought I'd pass this along in hopes it might help alleviate some 
frustration for someone else down the road.  I had a student who, when using 
his home computer, could not submit answers.  He clicked on the "Submit" 
button, but almost always got "This page cannot be displayed, there is an 
error in the URL" messages from his browser when he submitted.  After lots of 
consternation, we managed to track it down to his internet filter software of 
the type which blocks pornography, etc.  He eventually was able to set it to 
allow him to do his homework reasonable well, but until he finally came out 
with that piece of information, it was quite a mystery.
