That's because there needs to be a ":" between "http" and "//". 
Without the ":" your browser doesn't recognise it as a URL.

If the "http://"; were completely absent, most browsers will correctly
guess that it's a URL and add it, but if it's partly present they can
get a bit confused.

Try <http://homepage.mac.com/gslee1/newsread.html>
