Since we've wandered a bit off topic, I'll respond to
you directly off the list. If anyone's interested in
following this thread a tiny bit further, email me
Back when I was doing a lot of web UI design at my
job, I found the IRT.org resource very helpful for
these types of questions:
The insideDHTML article that Will pointed out also
looks like a good validation of the redirection
If you're able to throw CGI at it, a server-side
redirect is the best technique. I think the W3C even
recommends that approach.
REBOL could really use a standard (or quasi-standard)
set of CGI functions to handle these basic things.
Over the past 2 years, I've seen countless questions
on this list about POST/GET data, redirection, url
encoding, etc. This is entry-level CGI functionality!!
I bet if 3 or 4 generous REBOL CGI users offer, we
could arrive at a good core set. I'm sure RebolForces
(or someone) would love to host this package. Please
let's resolve some of these things once and for all.
