POLITICS: Scots' web hope; INTERNET.
Proposals which could see the endings of websites based in Scotland changed from '.co.uk' to '.sco' are currently being looked at by finance secretary John Swinney.
It follows the award of local suffixes to Jersey and the Isle of Man, while the Spanish region of Catalonia has the right to end its websites '.cat'.
The campaign for the '.sco' suffix has been led by Nationalist backbencher Christine Grahame.
An internet campaign group DotSco has also attracted nearly 1,000 signatures on a petition pushing for the move.
