This is *definitely* not the case. I checked twice and trice for such a
reference. I grep'ed through all the files and found nothing.

I doubt that anyone would bookmark the ads page as it was only used in
the upper frame.

The page looked like this:
|  ads  |
|  nav  |

And all I did was switching the ads page from shtml to a new PHP file.

However - even after *two or three months* - quite a number of browser's
keep requesting the old file...

*That* is the strange thing about this situation.
