i have found that IE will oven show the 'object moved' page with a 
link to the redirect page...

this comes about if you have the HTTP protocol in your browser set 
to 1.0 instead of 1.1...

as a result, i *try* to limit the response.redirect as much as 
possible in my ASP pages, and am actively hankering for the new 
transfer function in the win2k version of ASP...
