In the Windows XP hosts file (C:\windows\drivers\etc\hosts) replaces the mnemonic format with an ip address locally before talking to the dns.  Previously, I have used the four slots for hosts and keywords in a linksys router wrt54gs; which is very limiting. The segment below has been designed to block the game Adventure Quest with hosts collected from Fiddler2.  

 - How can this segment be consolidated and/or is there a better way to block this game?
 - Does the host "" differ from the host ""?
 - Can hosts reference a subdirectory ""?
 - Can hosts reference a specific page?
 - Is there a better way, have I errored, and any suggestions?
