Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

-------------------- Start of message text --------------------


Do it server-side, and deliver platform-appropriate content
transparently at the same URL.

Example I'm playing with at the moment (actually for printable
versions of my site):

This is just simple XSSI conditionality based on the query
string - there's no reason why it couldn't work with the UA
string too.

Subject:  [thelist] How can a redirect occur before onload?

This is a question from a co-worker.
I include his question here:

Is there a way you know of to send a user
to a different version of a page before the
whole page downloads. e.g. I'm making a site
for a friend and have made two contact forms
one for iE and the other for NN. The redirect to
the NN version only happens after the iE version
has loaded. Can I redirect before this somehow??
