If in the same group you have a page with a name, same as the other group,  
the dot is required.

For example, if you are in the Main.HomePage and you want to link to  
Galleries.Galleries, but you also have a page Main.Galleries, a link to  
Attach:Galleries/image.jpeg may not be what you mean. With the dot, it is  
clear that you link to a file in the Galleries/ group; without the dot you  
link to a file attached to a Main.Galleries page in the same group.
