[thelist] How can a redirect occur before onload?

If you have access to ColdFusion (or I would assume any similar AppServer)
you can detect using CF and include the different forms (or just the code).

Something like this, i think:
<cfif findnocase("msie", http_user_agent)>
  <cfinclude template="ieform.cfm">
  (or just put IE Form code here instead)

  <cfinclude template="nnform.cfm">
  (or just put NN form code here instead)


Of course, you can use the same scheme to re-direct, or to serve different
stylesheets, and the browser doesn'e need to know Javascript.
