I tested (and tweaked) the visible box with this:
from import show_socket_error
show_socket_error(OSError(61, 'connection refused'), ('port', 8888))
URL was tested with cut-and-paste from

This should be turned into an htest (human view test).  I did not do so now because I wanted get this into 3.6.2, and there is no indication of when the grace-period delay will end.

Message boxes do not allow copy to clipboard.  A nice refinement would be a [View URL] button.  I believe the code to do so is somewhere in IDLE.  Or the F1 Python Docs code, which opens the Windows help version, should be adjustable to open to a specific topic.
