When using the the slash character ('/') between nouns that have prepositions after them.

Should the preposition be included in the slash?

For example, I want to ask the following:

How can I see a examples from a website I cannot access or a preview of a website I cannot access?

Assuming I want to use an '/' between the words 'examples' and 'preview'.

Is any of the following written correctly:

  1. How can I see an examples from / preview of a website I cannot access?

  2. How can I see an examples / preview of a website I cannot access?

  • Why would you want to use a slash character in the first place instead of writing whatever it is that you actually want to say? How will anyone know how to read out what you're writing with actual English words not mathematical symbols? How can there be a "correct" way to do something that is not part of speech?
