Here's a very simple workaround that DOES work in Mozilla 1.1 for WinXP, at
least using IIS:

	<a href="./?querystring">something</a>

I have tons of links in a new design I'm working on here, and each
subsection has a central file managing all links between files within that
section to reduce file relationships. I have links that look like this:

	<a href="./?action=home">Main Page</a>
	<a href="./?action=webteam">Contact the Web Team</a>
	<a href="./?action=problemreport">Submit a Problem Report</a>

All those links are within the /contact folder and they are routed by the
server to default.asp.

Links to other areas would reference the folder and action, e.g.:

	<a href="/calendar/?action=events.calendarview">Calendar</a>
	<a href="/?action=homepage">Homepage</a>
