In html, the / or forward slash is used as part of html syntax to 'end' an instruction. For example, <big>WORD</big> will translate into WORD.

For example, /thread will be used by a poster when he thinks he has posted a comment or macro that has pwnt the whole thread/topic. In practice, all browsers and all users ignore this instruction.
