[thelist] hide part of url string

I don't want people bookmarking the wrong page...

But now that I think about it, if they get to main.htm then they have the
right flash version anyway.  So only issue is if someone shares the url...

Do not want to bother with frames so if there is no easy way I will just
live with it.

Kinda yucky, but you can use a frameset to do that - one child frame will be
0px wide, the other will be *.  What is the reasoning for doing it?  (Frames
are yucky IMHO).

Subject: [thelist] hide part of url string

Hi there. I want to be able to hide part of the url string. Can this be

I am running a flash detection script on the index page that then forwards
the user to main.htm (or another page if they do not have flash). I
basically want the url to show the main page i.e. www.website.com
<http://www.website.com/>  rather than www.website.com/main.htm.

Can this be done easily??
