I'll resist my temptation to ask 'why'. But, yes, you can force requests to be post by using options that allow you to specify the request method. This essentially limits you to forms, unless you want to use ajax and update everything dynamically (overkill, if this is the only benefit you're reaping). -- Matt Warden Cleveland, OH, USA http://mattwarden.com This email proudly and graciously contributes to entropy.
